Join El Paso Museum of History for the opening of their newest exhibition “Chicano Power! A Force For Change & Progress In El Paso”.

This exhibition focuses on the rise of the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in El Paso, Texas. From anti-discrimination activism encompassing farmworkers and labor rights, to anti-war movements wrapped in cultura, the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in El Paso, Texas is the story of how youth along with neighborhood mentors and families fought to transform social and systemic inequities into improved conditions. “Chicano Power!” retraces collective and individual memories rooted in El Paso but also reinforced in acts of solidarity with other Chicano and global communities who fought for the equity all.

Music by DJ Fantasma of Sound Decay Records, with light refreshments.
