California Love – a podcast by Walter Thompson-Hernández

LAist Studios
Listen HERE

Tupac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love” served as a love letter and anthem for a generation. The song inspired author and New York Times writer, Walter Thompson-Hernández, to create a show as prescient as it is personal. In his “California Love” series, Walter invites listeners to join him in his family home, on horseback through the streets of Compton, and up into the sky to examine belonging. Walter takes us deep into his own story as he explores what it means for him to love Los Angeles.

Walter Thompson-Hernández co-curated, along with lead curator Mariah Berlanga-Shevchuk, our exhibition “afroLAtinidad: mi casa, my city.”

Young Warriors Wednesdays

via Zoom

Tía Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore
Wednesdays Throughout 2020 – 3:00 – 4:50 PM
Register by email: youngwarriors@tiachucha.org

Young Warriors Mentoring Program focuses on Leadership mentorship. The role of a leadership mentor is to provide the tools and space needed in which youth, from all walks of life, can learn how to access and communicate their physical, mental and emotional needs and heal from their childhood traumas/struggles. We believe leading youth in facing their childhood wounds is key to achieve and understand their [own] self-authority, stability, discipline, purpose, and identity.

Museo Frida Kahlo – Virtual Tour

Google Arts & Culture

Explore HERE

La Casa Azul (The Blue House) was the place where Frida Kahlo, the most renowned Latin American artist in the world, came into this world, lived, and took her last breath. The building, which dates to 1904, was not a large-scale construction.

Today it has an 800 m2 building surrounded by property measuring 1200 m2. Diego and Frida filled it with color, folk art, and pre-Hispanic pieces to show their admiration for the peoples and cultures of Mexico. The construction underwent two major modifications. When Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky lived with Diego and Frida in 1937, the property today occupied by the garden was purchased. In 1946 Diego Rivera asked Juan O’Gorman to build Frida’s studio. The interior of the house has been maintained virtually intact. This was respected by the poet and the couple’s friend, Carlos Pellicer, who designed the museum display for the space after Frida’s death. Therefore, the house and its contents preserve that intimate atmosphere.
