Celebrating activist/artist hero Judy Baca. Story by MY HERO Staff Writer Deborah Neff

"Baca's history is different from the histories we see in the history books: it is an alternate history written from the perspective of those we have not ordinarily heard from – Hispanic women, youth, people of color, and q***r, many of whom were recruited from throughout the city to help work on the large installation."
