Renowned community organizer Rodolfo “Rudy” Lozano fought for labor rights and forged coalitions between Black and Latino Chicagoans before he was tragically murdered in 1983. Lozano was instrumental in the election of Harold Washington, the city’s first African American mayor, and led the push for Latino faculty and courses on Latin American history at the University of Illinois Chicago.
Reset learns about a new UIC exhibit that celebrates the way Lozano tried to bring different communities of people together.
GUESTS: Maria de los Angeles Torres, distinguished professor of Latin American and Latino Studies at the UIC
