The Chicano Legacy Project empowers all youth and
enlightens audiences by drawing on the rich and inspiring history of the Chicano movement
of the 1960s and 70s, a period of dramatic civil rights activity that continues to affect all Americans.
It is built around our Evangeline production and its related educational programs,
and the Young Theaterworks’ Through the Ages program.






About Productions’ Young Theaterworks programs offer innovative programming that
introduces youth to the importance of writing and the power of communication
through artistic expression, facilitated dialogue and live performance.
