PROGRAM # 9894 11:00 AM PT
Extra Edition: Mexican Miners During the Gold Rush. (Program Repeat.)
While Mexican, Chilean and Peruvian miners pioneered gold production in early California, they are hardly recognized in the official narrative about the history of the Golden State. Mexican and Latino mining camps were displaced by fortune seekers from the East Coast through “foreign miners license” laws. This archival program was originally aired on Feb 18, 1998 as part of a special series on California’s Sesquicentennial celebration.
Guest: Prof. Roberto Calderon, Historian, UC Riverside, Riverside, CA.
