At the ALMA 2014 awards, I was able to ask Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas what the term Chicano meant to him.  As a Chicana activist, I pay attention to what Chicano entertainers have to say about the term Chicano — from Carlos Santana to Cheech Marin.   I wanted new blood via the next generation to tell me what Chicano meant to them, and I believe Taboo handled this question beautifully and was amazed his own mother came from Garfield — a place where Jaime Escalante made his “stand.”
