This is your invitation to the film showing “Chicano Park” with guest Speaker David Diaz, author of the book Barrio Urbanism this Friday October 16th at 6pm. at Bellas Artes Gallery (244 S. Garey Ave, Pomona, 91766).
The Latin@ Roundtable and M.E.Ch.A de Mt. Sac are hosting this community gathering/potluck through Unity in the Community.
The focus is to create dialogue through films where we can learn from each other and educate each other on issues connected to the community.
The film depicts the history of Barrio Logan in San Diego, how the community organized for its survival, how the community took over the land situated beneath the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, and turned it into a place for murals, familia unity, organizing, cultural sustainability, and what is now Chicano Park.
