In the 1960s and 1970s a generation of Mexican Americans find a new way forward, through social action and the building of a new "Chicano" identity. The movement is ignited when farm workers, led by C©♭sar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, march on Sacramento. Through plays, poetry and film, Luis Valdez and activist Corky Gonzalez create a new appreciation of the long history of Mexicans in the South West. In Los Angeles, Sal Castro leads the largest high school student walkout in American history. In Texas, activists such as Jos©♭ ©ngel Guti©♭rrez, create a new political party and change the rules of the electoral game. By the end of the 1970s Chicano activism and identity transformed what it meant to be an American.
