WATCH: LITTLE MEXICO 
Special Thanks to our friends at KERA for providing us access to this insightful documentary.
“Little Mexico/El Barrio” explores the rich cultural heritage of one of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods, where individuals and families settled to begin new lives after immigrating from Mexico. Interviews, archival photographs, home movies and personal memorabilia create a historical record of this once-thriving community that encompassed the current Uptown, Arts District and Historic West End areas.
