Storyboard Text

  • Lucy excitedly walks into her first Chicano Studies Class. She sits down and shortly after Professor Aztlan begins his first lecture on “Laraza cosmica”
  • We are the cosmic race… la raza cosmica! We are both indigenous and Spanish
  • This….This is Aztlan. This is our ancestral home. If you are Mexican, you are Aztec.
  • Oh please, that’s not true-
  • Profe,you can’t forget about the African contribution to Mexican culture-
  • Oh that was things the Spanish brought, not the blacks. There are no black people in Mexico.
  • What about son jarocho, or rice cultivation, zapateado
  • Vicente Guerrero, Carmen Amelia Robles, there’s a Singer named ‘Tona la Negra’ how are you going to say there’s no bla-“
  • No you’re wrong, there’s nothing black about Mexico.
  • I think you just don’t like that black people helped contribute to your little hyper-masculine fantasy of what Mexico was and should be
  • Please stop talking.... I don't have time for this...
  • Lucy begins to feel embarrassed for walking out and reconsiders joining the class. She then notices that a handful of students walked out with her
  • Should I have walked out? Maybe I over-reacted... Oh!
