Taco USA and more at LA Plaza

Tuesday night Chief Operating Officer Gustavo Herrera stopped long enough to have his picture taken.  He and the  dedicated staff LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes has been presenting a wide variety of events.  In February they and MALDEF together recognized the experience of the Repatriated/Expatriated Mexicanos and Mexican Americans that went to Mexico primarily during the 1930s.  The plaque that was dedicated that day is a beautiful testament to their tribulations.  

In March they had a grand celebration commemorating Cesar E. Chavez.  Conjunto Los Pochos and printmaking.  This past week Gustavo Arellano, editor of the OC Weekly and writer of the Ask a Mexican column  had his first book signing for his new volume Taco USA at LA Plaza.
I understand that next month Dr. David Hayes Bautista will be involved with their Cinco de Mayo celebration.  Seems appropriate since his new book 
Cinco de Mayo - An American Tradition is recently released.  
Good luck Gustavo Herrera, Cindi Dale - Senior Curator,  and James Foster - La Tienda Godfather.  
Looks like you've got some busy, productive days ahead of you.
