Sept. 20: “Porvenir, Texas”

In the early morning hours of January 28, 1918, in the border town of Porvenir, Texas, a group of 15 fathers, uncles, brothers and sons were taken from their homes and executed; soon after, their families fled.  Who were the killers?  Why did they carry out such a horrific act?  “Porvenir, Texas” explores this tragic story, asks what led to the events of that fateful night and reveals the tensions that still remain along the border a century later. Watch online.

Sept. 27: “Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno”

The discovery of lost photographs sparks the search for a hero that history forgot — Maria Moreno, an eloquent migrant activist and mother of 12. Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, Maria used the only weapon she had — her voice — and became an outspoken leader in an era when women were usually relegated to the background.  The first woman farmworker in America to be hired as a union organizer, Maria’s story was silenced and her legacy buried — until now. Watch online.
