A People's History of the Inland Empire 

Dr. Genevieve Carpio will discuss true stories from throughout the 20th century history of the region. These accounts draw from a decade of research in regional archives and in collaboration with community organizations. Drawing on what late historian Howard Zinn calls "People's History," Carpio focuses on lesser known tales that make us rethink how places are commonly known. For instance, did you know Riverside was a center of Japanese American cycling at the beginning of the 20th century or that Mexican Americans had a vibrant car culture during the Great Depression? 

Dr. Carpio is a professor in UCLA’s Department of Chicana/o Studies, where she teaches courses in US history, suburban studies, and spatial theory. She is the author of Collisions at the Crossroads: How Place and Mobility Make Race (University of California Press, 2019).
