In conjunction with San Antonio’s Tricentennial Celebrations, Centro Cultural Aztlan will present an original ethnodrama depicting the story of El Laredito, the forgotten neighborhood west of San Pedro Creek. Social anthropologist, Dr. Citlali Maria Zentella, will engage participants through a historical journey featuring El Laredito’s barrio experience covering the lives of three families, whose ancestors were among the original residents of San Antonio’s 300-year history.

Residents, as well as interested visitors, will be able to enjoy a historical re-enactment of El Laredito written and narrated by Dr. Citlali Maria Zentella. The 300 years of EL Laredito will be recreated covering three periods beginning in 1718 and ending in the 1970’s when urban renewal demolished a once vibrant and thriving barrio.
