The Chicano Movement
What is The Chicano Movement?
The Chicano Movement emerged during the Civil Rights era with three goals: restoral of land, rights for farm workers and education reforms.. It was also called the Chicano Civil Rights Movement. The Chicano movement was a cultural as well as a political movement, helping to construct new, transnational cultural identities and fueling a renaissance in politically charged visual, literary, and performance art.
The Chicano Movement did much more than change a few laws, or provide better treatment for its people.
The Chicano Movement is very significant because it gave Mexican-Americans a voice. That same voice made society aware of the injustices suffered by Mexican- Americans in the United States and made a change within the social community which granted Mexican-Americans their human rights.
