Join UCLA Alumni Affairs Diversity Programs in their Professors in the Pub series featuring Dr. Eric Avila, associate professor of history, Chicano studies and urban planning at UCLA

Diversity Programs is grateful for Dr. Avila for hosting this event and providing an informal discussion on his recent work, “The Folklore of the Freeway: Race and Revolt in the Modernist City” that examines minority urban neighborhoods that lacked political and economic power to resist highway construction and its effect on dividing communities. Learn more about the untold story of communities that unsuccessfully revolted against the interstate highway program and engage with fellow Bruin alumni at the Westbound located in DTLA Arts District.

This event is open to all to UCLA alumni, students, and affiliates. The venue is a 21 and over establishment. Please RSVP by Monday, March 20. Space is limited.
