UC Berkeley California Studies Dinner Seminar, April 18, 2018: Tomas Summers Sandoval “The Vietnam War in Mexican America”

Professor Tomas Summers Sandoval will discuss his research on the impact of the Vietnam War on the Chicano community on Wednesday, April 18.  More than 200,000 Mexican Americans served in Vietnam, and Sandoval has explored the effects of the war on both individuals and the community through oral histories of Chicano veterans and community members.  A Professor of History at Pomona College with a Ph.D from UC Berkeley, Sandoval plans to publish the results of his research both as a book and as a dramatic performance piece.

The session will be from 7:00 to 9:15 p.m. at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (just east of Telegraph Ave.).  Free admission and dinner.
