Chicana por Mi Raza Digital Memory Project and Archive

Chicana por Mi Raza is an ongoing digital humanities project that collects and archives materials about Chicana feminist activists during the late 20th century. Headed by Maria Cotera, Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Michigan, and filmmaker and doctoral student Linda Garcia Merchant, the project includes contributions by numerous graduate and undergraduate students as well. At the heart of Chicana por Mi Raza is a series of powerful interviews with Chicana women from across the United States who were involved in the Chicana Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. In these interviews, women describe their experiences growing up and the events, people, and experiences that shaped their activism. Clips from these powerful oral histories can be found in the Timelines section and are tagged by subject. The site also includes archival material donated by the interviewees - including photographs, pamphlets, and student poetry.
