Take a trip back through California’s voting history in this show-and-tell led by historian Susan D. Anderson and archivists from across the state, including CSRC Librarian and Archivist Xaviera Flores.
José Montoya (1932–2013) was an artist, poet, musician, and educator, and a leading figure in bilingual and bicultural expression drawn from barrio life. Author Ella Maria Diaz examines his remarkable career, which traversed decades, languages, media, and genres.

Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center
(CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research
on the U.S. Chicano-Latino population. Our research mission is supported by
five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public and academic programs, and community-based partnerships.
