This project will focus on the Austin Chicano movement of the 1960's and 1970's as told by the Austin residents that lived it. Covering some of the themes that led to the rise of the movement, the piece will take us through the struggles and triumphs that occurred during the era, and include some of the aftermath. Each story will present a cohesive oral history focused on the community and its role in Austin Civil Rights.
