Join local historian Maria Garcia for a presentation on her forthcoming book "We Made San Diego."

In this wide-ranging talk, participants will hear about some of the Latino lives lived throughout San Diego County, including stories of Latino Vietnam veterans. Participants will also learn about notable people in neighborhoods we often do not hear too much about, such as Eden Gardens (La Colonia) in Solana Beach, San Ysidro, El Cajon, South Bay, as well as Barrio Logan.

Ms. Garcia will also discuss the role of community advocacy organizations, like the Chicano Federation, MAAC, and Casa Familiar, and how California propositions 187 and 227 spurred a new era of activism within the Latino community.
