6:30 pm - Ernesto Fraga Lecture & Discussion
The Waco FOP are excited to present a lecture by Mr. Ernesto Fraga, publisher of the TIEMPO Newspaper, on The Chicano Struggle For Justice.
In light of the recent presidential election that credits the Latino vote as being pivotal in present and future elections, there is a need for a greater understanding of the Chicano struggle that paved the way for today's realities. Chicanos have a 500 year history of struggling for justice since the Spanish conquest. Waco's TIEMPO Newspaper is a product of the Chicano movement for self determination that has dealt with the land struggle, bringing our history into the classrooms, immigration reform, police brutality, equal representation, political prisoners, Mexico/Central America, and coalition building with other movements for generations. This presentation will bring to light what has not been heard in mainstream media and our own history books. It's a story of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
