Vietnam War & Chicano Activism features voices of David Perkins, Roberta Price, John Brandi, Enrique Lamadrid, Bob D'Alessandro, and Lisa Law, each of whom vigorously resisted the Vietnam War.  Michael Naranjo from the Santa Clara Pueblo tells of being seriously wounded in combat in Vietnam, but overcame blindness and other injuries to become an internationally acclaimed sculptor.  Thereafter, E.A.
