Film Screening: Chicano Legacy
Monday, April 23, 2018
noon – 1 p.m.
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Join us to view this short documentary on the power of students to create change. The Chicano Legacy Mural was commissioned at UC San Diego in 2011 as a response to racist incidents on campus. The film explores how the first ever permanent, minority inspired public artwork on campus has inspired students and its impact on campus life.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers Horacio Jones and Jorge Mariscal, and folks featured in the film, including Fnann Keflezighi. The event, hosted by the Library’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

For more information, please contact Gayatri Singh, gasingh@ucsd.edu.
