The Chicano civil rights, El Movimiento, was a civil rights movement in order to extend the Mexican-American civil rights movement of the 1960s in order to achieve Mexican American empowerment.Throughout the movement, printmakers were very essential. Print makers are a very unique and talented way to represent political social and economic issues. Print making was a way tospread their message and political, social and economic advancements. Therefore, print making in the Chicano community was prominent in the 1970s because Chicano representation were underrepresented, especially Chicana artist. Chicanx art was a way to figure out how to put their struggles on the forefront and represent all communities within theirs, especially involving art. I feel as though print making is a way for people to easily see and envision their struggles.
