Chicano Movement!

By: Angeles Moreno (:

Luis J. Rodriguez

After slowly turning his back on the gang violence and drugs that defined his youth in 1960’s and 70’s Los Angeles, Rodríguez began his career as a journalist and poet. Even during his darker days he was active in the Chicano movement. His award-winning memoir "Always Running" offers a poignant, yet ultimately hopeful look at life in the barrio.
