‘Walkout’ Film Screened at UW for Hispanic Heritage Month Oct. 12

October 7, 2016

To celebrate and recognize Hispanic Heritage Month, the University of Wyoming’s 7220 Entertainment and the UW Latina(o) Studies Program sponsor the film “Walkout” Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. in the College of Business auditorium.

A panel discussion will follow the screening of the film. The event is free and open to the public.

“Walkout” is based on the true story of a young Mexican-American high school teacher, Sal Castro, who mentors a group of students in East Los Angeles. The students decide to stage a peaceful walkout to protest the injustices of the public school system. Set against the background of the civil rights movement of 1968, it is a story of courage and the fight for justice and empowerment.

7220 Entertainment is looking for committee members to join one or more of its five committees responsible for planning student events during the academic year. For information and listings about the committees, visit

The Films Committee, which sponsors “Walkout,” meets Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.
