"Jesus Salvador Trevino participated in and documented the most important events in the Mexican American civil rights movement of the late 1960's and early 1970's: the farm workers' strikes and boycotts, the Los Angeles school walk-outs, the Chicano Youth Conference in Denver, the New Mexico land grant movement, the Chicano moratorium against the Vietnam War, the founding of La Raza Unida Party, and the first incursion of Latinos into the media. Coming of age during the turmoil of the sixties, Trevino was on the spot to record the struggles, to organize students and workers into the largest social and political movement in the history of Latino communities in the United States."--Jacket.

In search of Aztlán ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
This film follows the Chicano comedy trio Culture Clash on a whimsical journey in search of the mythical Aztlán -- the ancient homeland of the Aztec people believed by many to be located somewhere in the southwestern United States -- using a map they've discovered and riding in a 1952 low-rider Chevy. In Search of Aztlán balances dramatized comedy scenes with documentary interviews to explain the myth and history of Aztlan. Political activists from the Mexican American community launched a civil rights movement of social justice and self-affirmation in the 1960s in response to years of discrimination and social injustice and adopted a mythic "Aztlán" as a symbol for their modern Chicano nation to generate unity amongst their community and to foster pride in an ancient heritage that predated the establishment of the United States. The positive legacy of this civil rights movement is still felt today. While the actual site of Aztlán is unknown, the map the threesome use in its adventure corresponds to several historical maps dating from the 1500s that have been uncovered which identify several possible sites for the Aztecs' homeland in California, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah, all of which are visited by the group. Although the film begins as comedic farce, it concludes with thoughtful revelations about the status of Mexican Americans and other Latinos in American society today and how the importance of Aztlán goes beyond an actual physical location.

"This video tells the story of a controversial mural painted on a Los Angeles building in 1932 by Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros. Depicting a Mexican crucified on a double cross, the mural represented Siqueiros' strong statement against U.S. imperialism in Mexico and the treatment of Mexicans in the U.S. Shortly after Siqueiros returned to Mexico, the mural was whitewashed by Los Angeles authorities. Nearly forty years later, two Mexican art restorers investigate the now faded mural and discuss the possibility of its restoration (the Getty Museum has announced that it will refurbish the mural in 2005-2006). The video also includes interviews with a then 74-year-old Siqueiros and other artists who worked with the great Mexican muralist"--Container insert.
