  • COVID-19 Update: Remote Operations in Effect


    Until further notice, CSU Pueblo is serving our students and the public in a remote model.

Colorado Chicano Movement Archives

Protest march

This Colorado Chicano Movement Archives (CCMA) contains photographs, film, documents, and printed material related to the Mexicano people’s fight against racism and discrimination in Colorado. Part of a greater struggle challenging social injustice during the 1960s and 70s, the Chicano Movement was a powerful engine for change. While seeking transformation in the public education system, electoral politics, labor practices, and law and order policies, the movement also nurtured a cultural renaissance in Chicano art and literature.

The CCMA comprises a dozen+ individual collections from Chicano activists and organizations including the papers of Juan Federico "Freddie Freak" Miguel Arguello Trujillo and Jose Esteban Ortega, CU-Boulder and Pueblo activists; the papers of Louie Luggs Garcia, Pueblo UFW, education, and environmental racism activist; and the Deborah Martinez Martinez Papers which contain her interviews with Colorado Chicano leaders and Chicano newsletter.

Voices of Protest Oral History Archives

Video and audio interviews, as well as transcripts of most of the interviews in this collection, are available in the CSU Pueblo Digital Repository. They include Latino Veterans Oral History Interviews with veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and Afghanistan as well as Colorado Chicano/a Movement activists in Pueblo, Denver, and Boulder, CO.
