The Play “Chavez Ravine”: A Tale of Ongoing Urban Removal

Jimmy Franco, Sr. A Latino Point of View in Today's World
Culture Clash's play about money, manipulation and red-baiting ending with destruction of a closely-knit LA Latino neighborhood over fifty years ago rings true today as the present economic power of developers and the drive to profitably exploit vulnerable communities within the central city and drastically change their ethnic, class and cultural composition continues to steadily displace the long-time residents of many neighborhoods.

Harvest of Empire

Harvest of Empire is "The Untold Story of Latinos in America." It is one of the many films featured in the first-ever Global Labor Film Festival, starting May 1, and including a wide range of films from classics such as "Salt of the Earth" and "Reds," to brand-new films like "Dreamwork China," "Harvest of Empire" and "The War on Whistleblowers."
