EthnoLA: Revisioning Community and Culture

Tuesday May 11, 2010 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

An evening of films by students of the UCLA Center for EthnoCommunications program, highlighting the diverse experiences of people across Los Angeles County. This retrospective screening offers a look at a multiethnic skateboard crew in Long Beach; the Bus Riders’ Union and one of its elder organizers, Grandma Kim; the issues students face in a low-income high school; South Asian motel owners; and the struggles of Latino truck drivers who work the port of Los Angeles.

Co-presented with the Center for EthnoCommunications, a program of the UCLA Asian American Studies Center, this program is one of the events commemorating the 40th Anniversary of ethnic studies centers at UCLA.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
