On this episode, Tomas Summers-Sandoval talks about the little known history of Latinos in the Vietnam War and how the number of Latinos in that war was a lot larger than people realize. He also talks about the forgotten legacy of the Chicano Moratorium of 1970, one of the largest minority-led, anti-war movements during this period. Summers-Sandoval is an associate professor of History &Chicanx/Latinx studies @ Pomona College.
The LMC takes a cruise down the boulevard as we explore the rich & complex history of Lowriders and how this once marginalized subculture became an international phenomenon. Our guest for this trip is Denise Sandoval, professor of Chicana & Chicano Studies @ Cal State University in Northridge, California.
