The California State Parks Foundation proudly presents FOLDING BACK THE LAYERS OF CALIFORNIA’S LATINO/A HISTORY: THE STORIES BENEATH THE STORIES HIDDEN STORIES SERIES
CSPF invites all of its members and the public to our third Hidden Stories Series conference at the Center for Healthy Communities at the California Endowment in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday and Thursday, October 2 and 3, 2013. Attendees will be offered special tours of local historic parks and surrounding areas such as Los Angeles State Historic Park, Pío Pico State Historic Park, the Homestead Museum, a downtown mural walking tour, El Pueblo De Los Angeles Historic Monument, and more.
The 2013 Hidden Stories conference will explore Latino history in the context of California’s state parks. Many state parks ably include interpretation of the contributions of historical Latino figures and the context of the time and place. This conference seeks to go beyond existing interpretation to look at “the stories beneath the stories” of this extremely important historical group.
The Conference will showcase panel discussion and Q&A in three main areas:
- 1. Narradoras de California (Narrators of California): Women and their Families in Historic Communities
- 2. Quiere ser mi Vecino (Do You Want to Be My Neighbor): Parks and the Evolution of Historic Latino Neighborhoods
- 3. Etnicidad, Identidad y Lugar (Ethnicity, Identity and Place): California’s Historic Latino Population
A celebratory dinner, featuring Ric Salinas of Culture Clash, will be held Wednesday night, October 2nd, at Plaza de Cultura y Artes Los Angeles Museum, which tells the story of Mexican Americans in Los Angeles. Gustavo Herrera, the museum’s CEO, will be among the speakers, and guests will be offered tours of this striking museum, named “Best New Mexican American Heritage Museum” by LA Weekly in 2012. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy drinks and a delicious dinner in a striking outdoor setting.
