Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales was an Chicano organizer. He organized the first Chicano youth conference in March of 1969. I made this in 2002 when worked as a graphic designer at Mision Grafica at the Mission Cultural Center. I wanted to do portraits of people who were key leaders in the Chicana/o movement and had learned about Corky’s role in supporting the youth movement.  #screenprint #screenprinting #art#arte #chicanoart #chicanaart#chicanohistory
