Student Activism: West High School March 1969 Blow Out!
El Movimiento was fueled by the activism of young people. In March, 1969, students marched out of West High School to demand better educational opportunities. Walkouts occurred throughout the city. Join us to watch clips from “West High School March 1969: Blow Out!” followed by a panel discussion with people involved in the West High Blowout, including Carlos Santistevan and Emanuel Martinez from the Crusade for Justice, as well as student leaders and activists today. Moderated by Deborah Espinosa.
