CONTENT INPUT QUESTION:
Throughout the short-term course, the readings, the videos, the discussions, and the reading logs provides us evidence of Chicana/o history. Sanchez speaks about how communities thrived despite the deep rooted discrimination that exists and existed in numerous parts of the American Southwest. Despite such social, political, and economic conditions, pockets of push back emerged. Think about Lemon Grove, Sleepy Lagoon and others. In other words, communities did not sit back and simply accept their conditions, they engaged their agency and pushed back.
So, in this final question of the semester, write an essay that explains the historical and contemporary condition of Chicano communities by exploring the relationship between political power and community agency and engagement. In other words, communities did not sit back and simply accept their conditions, they engaged their agency and pushed back. What does that mean to you?
