Mateo Manuel Vela and UMAS y MECHA present “By Any Means We Deem Necessary: An Archival Walkthrough of the 1994 Ethnic Studies Protests at CU Boulder,” an exhibition to raise awareness about the 1994 Ethnic Studies protests at CU Boulder as another centerpoint of forgotten BIPoC and Chicanx history, and to demonstrate how these protests were linked to the legacies of student activism in UMAS EOP (United Mexican American Students Equal Opportunity Program) of 1960s-70s and the legacy of Los Seis de Boulder among other BIPoC-led student movements at the University. “By Any Means We Deem Necessary: An Archival Walkthrough of the 1994 Ethnic Studies Protests at CU Boulder" features copies of university documents, newspaper articles, as well as posters, flyers, and poems by BIPoC students from 1974 and 1994 from CU Boulder’s Rare and Distinctive Collections and other archival sources.
