Chicana/o Studies to Host Event Honoring Sal Castro

Rosie C. Bermudez created this altar for Sal Castro's Memorial this week. Credit: UCSB Chican@ Studies Facebook pagePlease join the Department of Chicana/o Studies as they celebrate the life, achievements, and legacy of Sal Castro on Thursday, May 2, in the Dolores Huerta Room (SH 1623) from 4 to 6 p.m.

Sal Castro was an educator and advocate for the Chicana/o communities. After a recent bout with cancer, Castro passed away. Castro is most known for his involvement with the East Los Angeles Walkouts of 1968. Castro was also known for educating the Latina/o community and informing them of their rights as students and of their options for attending colleges and four-year universities.

Castro helped inform, inspire, and empower many young people to attend college and become educated. In 2006 HBO Films released a movie titled "Walkout."

If you have the time, and would like to learn more about the legacy of Sal Castro, please think of attending this event. I hope to see you there.
