Exploring the History of Our Religious Cemeteries on the LA Eastside: Chavez Ravine, Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles.
When ever I talk about the history of Los Angeles and the eastside, I always say that each site has more than one story. Each site has significance for more than one culture. The history is multi-layered and complicated; or as I say, our history is lumpy. And that the traumas of the city all are interconnected, and that the pains of our minorities are often shared. We will pay special attention to the often unheard Jewish history here.
This is just a preview of some of my upcoming work on the subject… right now im thinking out the direction of the talk ill be giving… please, stay tuned!
