Latino identity has always been a vexing question. Should we call ourselves Mexican Americans, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Boricuas, Latinos, Hispanics? A historic moment of self-definition took place in March of 1969 when activist leader Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales convened a National Youth Conference in Denver , Colorado. More than 1500 youths from throughout the United States attended and defined themselves as “Chicanos,” Mexican Americans with a political consciousness. Jesús Treviño, then a film student, documented the week-end conference with collaborators Martín Quiroz and Bobby Romero.
