Column: Mexican Players are again in the spotlight

An event in Pomona on Saturday will be devoted to the legacy of the Mexican Players, who performed at Padua Hills Theatre from 1931 to 1974, making it the longest-running Mexican American theater in the nation. As legacies go, though, it’s a complicated one, which I try to unpack in Friday’s column. It’s a historical/cultural subject I’ve avoided for years, and we’ll see from the response if I should have avoided it a while longer. Above, a Mexican Players promotional photo, provided by the Historical Society of Pomona Valley, the event organizer.
