Location: Latinx Research Center

Join us at UC-Berkeley’s Latinx Research Center on Monday, November 13th to celebrate the release of Victory is in the Struggle: From Barrio Boy to Revolutionary & Scholar (2023), a memoir by Carlos Muñoz Jr., one of the most important civil rights activists and scholars of the 20th century. Published by Eastward Books, Victory is in the Struggle details the life of a man whose dedication to social justice, courage, and compassion was forged in the crucible of poverty and racial injustice. A pioneer in the Chicano Movement, Carlos Muñoz Jr., co-founded its student and scholarly organizations and was instrumental in establishing the nation’s first Chicano Studies Department, serving as its inaugural chair. His life is a testament to meaningful “firsts,” and his unwavering integrity has left an indelible mark on history.
