Chicano Movement 1971 – 1974: One man’s perspective in photos

September 8, 2015

The photos on display in the Fireplace Lounge are only a few of the hundreds of photographs Juan Espinosa took between 1971 and 1974 when he was a journalism student at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Cesar Chavez, Corky Gonzales, and Reies Tijerina already were national figures in the Chicano Movement. He started “El Diario” student newspaper during the summer of 1972. Until he graduated in May 1974, he spent much of his time documenting the Chicano Movement.

An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, September 15, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the Fireplace Lounge, Dayton Memorial Library. An artist talk will be held on Wednesday, September 16, from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. in the O’Sullivan Gallery.
