Pasadena & Beyond – Mexican Americans & Pasadena – 12/19/2017

Pasadena and Beyond is a local community affairs talk show. Show topics will include services provided to Pasadena and surrounding area residents in addition to topical discussions on health, art, politics, business, and social justice meant to connect and empower Pasadena residents. Ever wonder about the Mexican American contribution to Pasadena City history? In Roberta H. Martinez’s new book, Latinos in Pasadena, the story is finally told through formal and informal oral histories of the city. Ranging from the Ethnic History Research Project of Pasadena compiled in 1995 to the personal family history of the Martinez family, Roberta pulls from historical research and her own personal activism to bring to the light a truer history of Pasadena.
