    This video documents the first national convention in El Paso, Texas in September 1972 of the La Raza Unida Party, a third political party whose membership consisted primarily of Mexican-American citizens. It features speeches, caucus meetings and lively discussions between some of the era's leading Chicano leaders—including ‘Corky' Gonzalez, Reies Lopez Tijerina, Raul Ruiz, and Jose Angel Gutierrez—as well as debates about the National Party Platform and the election of Jose Angel Gutierrez as La Raza Unida's National Party Chairman.
