FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Join us for a discussion on immigration, activism, and 'The Mexican Revolution in Chicago' with professor and co-director of the Social Justice Institute at Case Western Reserve University, John H. Flores, and moderated by the interim director of Northeastern University's El Centro, Maria Elena Luna-Duarte.

Few realize that long before the political activism of the 1960s, there existed a broad social movement in the United States spearheaded by a generation of Mexican immigrants inspired by the Mexican Revolution (1910-20). The majority of these immigrants never became U.S. citizens and have thus far been lost to American history, though they have much to teach us about the international world of today. John H. Flores follows this revolutionary generation of Mexican immigrants and the transnational movements they created in the United States.

Through a detailed study of Chicagoland, Flores examines how competing immigrant organizations raised funds, joined labor unions and churches, engaged the Spanish-language media, and appealed in their own ways to the dignity and unity of other Spanish-speaking immigrants.  Painting portraits of liberals and radicals, who drew support from the Mexican government, and conservatives, who found a homegrown American ally in the Roman Catholic Church, Flores recovers a complex and little known political world shaped by events south of the U.S border.

About the Author:
Born in Chicago, Dr. John H. Flores is the son of Mexican immigrants, and his research centers on recovering the lost history of Mexican immigrant political activism in the United States.  His book, The Mexican Revolution in Chicago, reveals the ways Mexican immigrants created transnational political movements to improve their lives on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Flores teaches courses on immigration and labor history and co-directs the Social Justice Institute at Case Western Reserve University.
