Raza Movimiento Newspapers

I began to gather this list in October 2017 to supplement my entries in The Chicana and Chicano Movement: From Aztlán to Zapatistas (ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Praeger). Some of this material can be found in university special collections, but the vast majority of it is not accessible online. I quickly realized that the immense collection of content produced over decades as the print media of the Chicana/o movement is now largely excluded from the collective political memory of raza communities. Having been an editor of several campus and community newspapers, I felt that the erasure of this important part of our history was, at best, tragic.

With this online project, I hope to gather information about as many student Chicana/o publications as possible, as well as provide access to examples of these publications. In 2019, the Journal of Alternative and Community Media published my article “Movimiento Voices On Campus: The Newspapers of the Chicana/o Student Movement.” I began with student publications because they are more accessible via library special collections. The second stage of this list includes broader community-based newspapers of the Chicana/o movement.

I credit the work of Josue Estrada who compiled the list “Chicano Newspapers and Periodicals 1966 – 1979” that is part of the online “Mapping American Social Movements, Through the 20th Century” project at the University of Washington. Reviewing this list was the original inspiration and source material from which I began to develop my own online project.
