Virtual: We Made San Diego

Latino Contributions in Our Region

Join local historian Maria Garcia for a presentation on her forthcoming book We Made San Diego. In this wide-ranging talk, participants will hear about some of the Latino lives lived throughout San Diego County, stories of Latino veterans who served in the Vietnam War, and of notable people in neighborhoods we often don’t hear too much about, such as Eden Gardens (La Colonia) in Solana Beach, San Ysidro, El Cajon, South Bay, as well as Barrio Logan. Ms. Garcia will also discuss the role of community advocacy organizations like the Chicano Federation, MAAC, and Casa Familiar, and how California propositions 187 and 227 spurred a new era of activism within the Latino community.

Modeler Citizens Virtual Lecture Series

Oct 29, 2020

The San Diego Model Railroad Museum has debuted Modeler Citizens, a series of informative and entertaining presentations from an array of acclaimed railroad modelers and historians! 

The talks take place every other Thursday at 6 p.m. through the end of 2020 (excluding holidays) via Zoom Webinar. Margaret Harris, the museum’s Collections Curator, moderates as the featured speaker showcases their own model layout, shares a bit of San Diego railroading history, or discusses a topic of their expertise. Viewers can learn about the history of cross-border travel from railroad pro Mike Thornhill (Oct. 1), get “behind the scenes” of the mechanics and creation of the museum’s O Gauge layout from modeler Bob Wall (Dec. 10), see a fascinating home layout courtesy of award-winning radio host “Shotgun” Tom Kelly (Oct. 29), and more!
