Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection is made up of various materials from differing social movements throughout the 20th century. Especially in the 1960s, a boom of social movements erupted across the globe and in the United States formed by groups of people feeling frustrated with the continued oppression and lack of recognition throughout the course of history. There are materials from the Black Civil Rights Movement, Chicano Movement, the United Farm Workers, the Young Lords Movement, and surrounding the events of the Zoot Suit riots in Los Angeles, including photographs, banners, posters, a program, Chicano art, and tattoo designs.
