in La Casa Latina



Join us at PSU's La Casa Latina for a screening of the 1954 film Salt of the Earth, based on 1951 strike against Empire Zinc Company in Grant County, New Mexico. This film was blacklisted by the Hollywood establishment at the time because of its portrayal of Chicana and Mexican women--who led the strike--as community leaders and saw the film as a threat to the social order.

This event is a part of PSU MEChA's 2017 Chicanx Week. Free drinks and snacks will be provided.
