Event Description
Sponsored by Center for Latin American Studies Department / Walkout is the true story of a little-known but profoundly significant moment in the history of the Latino community in East Los Angeles. In 1968 Lincoln High School honor student Paula Crisostomo, outraged at the shabby treatment afforded Chicano students in the L.A. school system, challenges the authority of her elders for the first time in her life by organizing a mass student walkout at five barrio high schools (2006, 111 minutes, not rated, In Spanish with English subtitles )
