Today Chicano rap movement is taking place mostly underground throughout the United States. It Is where Chicano raps language and culture is accepted in its entirety. The chicano movements main goal is recieve mainstream acceptance. The University of California Riverside radio puts on annually a Chicano music festival “designed to provide guidance for Chicano and Latino students through college, and also to help them overcome cultural or institutional barriers that may hamper their university experience.” This just one major accomplishment by the chicano movement to raise awareness, with many more to come.
