    The Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum Distinguished Speaker Series is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

    Dr. Frank P. Barajas will be speaking on the topic “Mexican Americans with Moxie: Chicana/o Youth Movements in Ventura County, 1960-1975” at the Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum 220 Market Street  on September 21, 2019 at 11:00 AM.

    The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s inspired a generation of youth to realize the ideals of the American Revolution: Equality, Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness. Hence, throughout Ventura County Mexican Americans demanded the same rights and privileges espoused since the early Republic. Professor Frank P. Barajas will discuss the collective activism in Mexican American communities to realize equal protections in education, politics, and employment.

    Professor Frank Barajas is a professor and chair of History and Chicana/o Studies at California State University Channel Islands. Born and raised in the City of Oxnard, he attended its public schools and obtained degrees at Moorpark College, California State University, Fresno, and the Claremont Graduate University. He is the author of Curious Unions: Mexican American Workers and Resistance in Oxnard, California, 1898-1961 (2012) as well as a follow up book on the Chicana/o movement in Ventura County from 1961-1975.

    In addition to his academic work, Professor Barajas has published opinion essays in The History News Network, The History News Service, The Bakersfield Californian, Perspectives on History, and the Ventura County Star.
