Freddie “Freak” Trujillo, 81, a Chicano Movement warrior disguised as a hippie, took his last breath May 21 after a long and courageous fight against cancer. Trujillo will be remembered as one who recognized the historical significance of the Chicano civil rights movement. He was the first to donate his personal papers, photographs, 8mm movies and audio recordings to the Colorado Chicano Movement Archives at Colorado State University-Pueblo more than 10 years ago.
