About The Screening

Pride & Prejudice - Latino Americans Civil Rights Then & Now – The featured clips will highlight leaders like Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, and tell stories about the Capo Family and The Los Angeles Walkout. Participants will explore how Latino American struggles then are similar to the challenges today. We will discuss who is leading the charge for civil rights now and the role that young people play to guarantee the civil rights of Latino Americans today.

Latino Americans is a new PBS documentary series scheduled to air Fall 2013. It is the first major documentary series for television that chronicles the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos in America. It is a story of immigration and redemption, of anguish and celebration, of the gradual construction of a new American identity that connects and empowers millions of people today.
