Not sure exactly what you are seeking. Can you go into more detail?
Thanks for reaching out. The Chicano Moratorium held on August 29, 1970. It was a protest march by the Chicano/Mexican communities in East Los Angeles. What started as a peaceful protest march ended up as being a violent clash between protesters and the police. Looking for pictures, documents, media documents etc. on this subject matter.
