History doesn’t usually acknowledge that five of the victims of Ludlow were Chicano, Garcia says. “I always want to hear those voices of our past that were silenced and give them an opportunity to be heard. So much of Chicano history is looked at as the history of ‘the other.’ There’s U.S. history, and somehow our voices got lost in that. This is an opportunity to put our voices back into that space.”
