The OSU Press just recently published the book Sonny Montes and Mexican American Activism by U of O History professor Glenn Anthony May
“On one level a biography of Oregon’s leading Mexican American activist, the book also tells the broader story of the state’s Mexican American community during the 1960s and 1970s, a story in which Sonny Montes had an important part.” ~ OSU Press
On Thursday, September 29, OSU hosted a panel discussion featuring Sonny Montes, John Little, and OSU Professor José-Antonio Orosco.
Sonny Montes and John Little worked together for the Valley Migrant League — an organization created to assist Oregon’s migrant workers and later, Montes became involved in the Colegio César Chávez — a four year university by Mexican Americans and for Mexican Americans.
The OMA had the wonderful opportunity to display materials from the Colegio César Chávez Collection
