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

And there will be more to come!
