Why the Moratorium

The Church of the Epiphany People's History Project presents Why the Chicano Moratorium in efforts to address and provide insight on the key historical moments that led up to the National Chicano Moratorium march and rally in East Los Angeles on August 29, 1970. Community Historian and Curator, Rosalio Muñoz, looks at why these events happened, how they happened, and what happened in the aftermath. Furthermore, Muñoz looks at how the events of that day still affect the Chicano-Latino community today and now.
