KQED Film Screening: Latino Americans at the CA Historical Society
Please join KQED and The California Historical Society for a screening of Latino Americans, followed by a panel discussion looking at history through the eyes of Juana Briones. This screening event is part of their ongoing exhibit on Juana Briones. In this bilingual exhibition about the life and times of Juana Briones (1802–1889)—pioneer, founder, healer—we experience the transformation of California under three flags: Spain, Mexico, and the United States. We navigate alongside Juana—without a formal education yet dynamic, strategic, and resourceful—through the social, economic, political, and legal upheavals of nineteenth-century California.
Welcome from Anthea Hartig, Executive Director of CA Historical Society. Panel discussion with Professor Rose Marie Beebe and Ray Telles, Director and Filmmaker.
