Crónicas: Chican@/Latin@ history at Stanford

Welcome to Crónicas, a website dedicated to uncovering the collective story of the development of Casa Zapata residence, El Centro Chicano, and the people and places that have contributed to the Chican@/Latin@ community of Stanford.

Under the guidance of the internationally recognized muralist Judith F. Baca, ten Stanford students researched, archived, conceptualized, and proposed a mural for El Centro Chicano. We hope this website will serve to chronicle the making of our mural, provide virtual tours of existing murals on Stanford’s campus, and feature an interactive timeline of the presence of Chican@s/Latin@s at Stanford. 

We invite you to take part in this collaborative process to explore, study, and understand the history of Chican@s and Latin@s at Stanford.
