Quote “My ancestors - their struggles, their triumphs, their stories – are fundamentally tied into this land. I take great pride in walking over the same streets myancestors did. Especially in Southern California, where there is so much anti-immigrant sentiment, I wanted my children, who are blessed to be multicultural, to know about the lives of those who came before them.”
