Today we’re bringing you an episode from our vault — a love story of student activism. We’re taking you back to 1968, when thousands of students participated in a series of protests that helped spark the Chicano Movement, historically known as the East L.A. Walkouts. It’s also when high school sweethearts and student organizers Bobby Verdugo and Yoli Ríos danced to a Thee Midniters song and fell in love.

Also, poet Willie Perdomo takes a walk through Harlem to discuss his poetry, his teenage years and how memories of that time inspired his latest work.
