Today’s Hispanic Heritage Month featured Latinx Person of the Day is
Rodolfo Acuña an American historian, professor emeritus at California State University, Northridge, and a scholar of Chicano studies. He authored the 1972 book Occupied America: A History of Chicanos, approaching history of the Southwestern United States with a heavy emphasis on Mexican Americans. An eighth edition was published in 2014. Acuña has also written for the Los Angeles Times, The Los Angeles Herald-Express, La Opinión, and numerous other newspapers. His work emphasizes the struggles of Mexican American people. Acuña is an activist and he has supported numerous causes of the Chicano Movement.[1] He currently teaches an on-line history course at California State University, Northridge.
Acuña was born in Los Angeles, California in 1932 to Alicia Elías who was from Sonora, Mexico. His father was from Cocula, Jalisco.
Acuña says his academic counselor advised him to teach “Spanish” or “Physical Education” because “Mexicans don’t have a history.” This infuriated him, an outrage that motivated him to pursue a doctorate in history. His specialty was northern Mexico and the Mexican origin of people in the United States. His study led to his participation in the movement to begin Chicano Studies, giving a voice to Mexican Americans in education and history.
