Today in Chicanx History, 44 years ago on this day the Chicano Moratorium march to protest against Vietnam War took place in East L.A. This was the beginning of the civil rights movement for Chicanx. Today also marks the death of Chicano journalist Ruben Salazar who was killed by police during the Chicano Moratorium.
