Hot Off The Press

The Mexican American Digital History Project and a broad group of allies have been working for over a year to add Chicano history to the California History/Social Science Framework, the document that determines what goes into textbooks in California.

For details see here.

 We are pleased to inform you that the Quality Instructional Materials Commission of the California State Board of Education have posted their proposed revised framework and it includes most of what we wanted. 

It is here.

We encourage contributions of written documents and photos for this site.  We can only accept electronic forms of documents (ie. MS Word). We will collect, write, and post this history so that it is not lost nor discarded. We make this history available to teachers to balance the lack of Chicano history in the public schools, universities and local museums. 

For more information. 

We are creating the Chicano/Mexican American Digital History project, an on-line digital history museum.
