Companion site to a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Independent Lens film about the Mexican-American families living in the Chavez Ravine area of Los Angeles who were, in the early 1950s, "forcefully evicted ... to make way for a low-income public housing project. ... But instead of building the promised housing" the city sold the land, and Dodger Stadium was built on the site. Features a history of Chavez Ravine, photographs of residents, and related links.
