The 1968 East Los Angeles High School Walk-Outs are recognized as the impetus for the National Chicano Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Two months after the walk-outs, on June 1, 1968, the Los Angeles Grand Jury indicted 13 activists and charged them with conspiracy to disturb the peace. The “L.A. Tirteen,” faced 66 years in prison if convicted. Here, Carlos Muñoz, one of the thirteen, recalls his arrest and trial.
