      Raymond Caballero in Conversation With Barbara Dudley

      Clinton Jencks, a decorated war hero, adopted as his own the Mexican American fight for equal rights in New Mexico’s mining industry. In 1950, he led a local of the International Union of Mine, Mill, and Smelter Workers in the famed Empire Zinc strike, but three years after, Jencks was arrested and charged with falsely denying that he was a Communist and was sentenced to five years in prison. In McCarthyism vs. Clinton Jencks (University of Oklahoma), Raymond Caballero reveals for the first time that the FBI and the prosecution knew all along that Jencks was innocent. The tale of Jencks’s quest for justice provides a glimpse into the McCarthy era’s oppression. Caballero will be joined in conversation by Barbara Dudley, Senior Fellow at the Hatfield School’s Center for Public Service.
