Join us for the launch of children's book "Barrio Rising: The Protest That Built Chicano Park" by María Dolores Águila, illustrated by Magdalena Mora.

"Barrio Rising" is a vivid historical fiction account of the community activism behind San Diego’s Chicano Park—home to the largest outdoor mural collection in the U.S.—and just one example of the Mexican American community’s rich history of resistance and resilience.
