I have created this website to share my family's history and to document the untold story of Chicanos  at the University of California, Berkeley 1968-1976. I am a second generation Mexican American but consider myself a Chicano. My family origins on my father's side are Villa Garcia, Zacatecas and Aguascalientes, Mexico; on my mother's side, Guanajuato and Guadalajara.
   I was born and raised in
San Bernardino, Ca, in the westside barrio known as Mt. Vernon. After dropping out of High School at 16, I went on to earn an Associate of Arts Degree in 1967 at San Bernardino Valley College. In 1970, I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and, in 1977, a Law Degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Then, in 1997, I received a Masters Degree in Education from San Diego State University.
   Until December of 2006 I lived in
Calexico, CA, USA, which borders Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. I worked at San Diego State University-Imperial Valley Campus as a Credential Analyst in the Teacher Education Program, and part-time as an adjunct Professor of Political Science at Imperial Valley College.
   Now retired, I have moved to
Baja California, Mexico where I will continue to write and add to this website.
