PR Newswire

LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes presents a series of events focusing on race in a program organized by the Smithsonian, in collaboration with the Chinese American Museum and the Japanese American National Museum, December 1 through 17, 2023

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, situated in historic downtown LA, is set to host a compelling series of events in collaboration with the Smithsonian. These events, organized under the Our Shared Future: Reckoning with Our Racial Past initiative, aim to illuminate the shared racial history between the Japanese, Chinese, and Latino communities in Los Angeles.

On Sunday, December 3, LA Plaza will host the plática/panel "American Latinos in Hollywood: Struggles and Achievements in the Film and TV Industry." This discussion will be featuring prominent American Latino filmmakers and artists, delving into their careers within Hollywood, spotlighting the creation of culturally impactful on-screen representations in today's diverse media landscape. Filmmaker Angel Manuel Soto, the Director and Producer of DC's hit feature film Blue Beetle, joins the panel of Latino Hollywood heavyweights.

Four days later, on Thursday, December 7, LA Cocina de Gloria Molina, an extension of LA Plaza, will delve into the gastronomic, social, economic, and cultural evolution of Mexicali, Mexico. This conversation titled "Plática y Prueba: From China to Mexicali" will highlight the contributions of Chinese immigrants who arrived in Baja California, Mexico, in the late 19th century.

Finally, on Sunday, December 17, LA Plaza will host a Family Day which will be occurring simultaneously at LA Plaza, the Japanese American National Museum, and the Chinese American Museum. Mi Los Ángeles Family Celebration will commemorate the rich history, art, and culture of Los Angeles. Families are encouraged to partake in entertainment and workshops embracing the city's diversity.
