A history of how powerful whites in Los Angeles, between the 1850s and World War II, managed to erase the presence of Mexicans from the city's history, from significant parts of its landscape, and from its power structure--a story with much to tell us about LA's contemporary ethnic arrangements.
Annotation:
A poetic look at the lives of the Shakers, a utopian community established in the United States in 1774 by Ann Lee. An end note explains the many contributions Shakers have made to the world, including the perfection of herbal medicine, the creation of seed packets, and their firm belief in equal rights for all their members. Illustrated with acrylic paintings.
