Locating Latino San Francisco

9/09/11 - 12/16/2011

Main Library

San Francisco History Center Exhibit Space - 6th Floor

100 Larkin St.

Where is the Latino presence located in San Francisco? And how have subsequent waves of Latino immigration shaped San Francisco's geography, culture, and politics? This exhibit looks at the diversity of San Francisco's Latino communities over time and the traces they've left behind--from 19th century maps of the Californio land grants to Bernal family letters, and from the nightclubs of the Latin Quarter to family photographs in the Mission District. Selected from the collections of the San Francisco History Center, maps, menus, correspondence, and photographs depict Latino life and its impact in the city. Presented in conjunction with American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music.
