Program: “Creating Community During Hard Times"
Creating Community During Hard
Times looks at the way Mexican immigrants who came to San Gabriel
fleeing the Mexican Revolution were able to survive the hard times they
initially experienced in their new country. During the 1920s and 1930s
when some described their presence as the “Mexican problem,” they had to
deal with anti-immigrant sentiment, poverty, the Great Depression,
negative portrayals in the press, and limited employment opportunities.
But they dealt with their situation by creating community through the
bonds of family, the formation of mutual aid associations, the
development of ethnic enterprises, and shared experiences in the
churches and schools, as well as participation in sports teams and
involvement in a variety of social activities.
