History Matters in the Mission is a mini historic tour down 24th street presented in the form of a street theater procession with live music on a flatbed truck, dancing in the street, giant puppets, and elements of radical street theater originally introduced by the SF Mime Troupe in the 1960’s, with elements of today’s technology such as networked mobile devices and AR. The Chicana feminist artist Yolanda Lopez, who recently passed away in September, was very inspirational in the project conception during conversations with Paseo Artístico coordinator Paul S. Flores in the Fall of 2019 at Accion Latina. The show is dedicated to her in honor of her artistic and local community contributions. Vero Majano, the Community Music Center’s Mission District Young Musicians Program also features.

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, will present the history of Mission Grafica and a view of the altars of the day of the dead.

Co-presented by:

Accion Latina, SFMOMA, Precita Eyes, Brava Theater, Community Music Center, Dance Mission, Adobe Books, and Mission Cultural Center.
