Vicky from the ever-excellent Bernal History Project passed along an announcement about a presentation by our favorite local separatist, La Lengua’s own Burrito Justice (aka Johnny O). It’s no exaggeration to say Burrito Justice put La Lengua on the map — but the really sly bit is that he also created the very first map upon which La Lengua first appeared. (Shown above.)
The talk takes place TONIGHT at 7 pm the Bernal Heights library. Vicky says:
This month’s Bernal History Project meeting features a special guest. Burrito Justice, La Lengua’s resident citizen cartographer and historian, presents a slideshow and talk that will take us on a tour of Bernal and the Mission in the 1860s. There’ll be maps, photographs, and all sorts of computer whizzery.
And if you don’t know where or what La Lengua is, come to the meeting and find out!
The presentation starts at 7 p.m. sharp in the downstairs meeting room at the Bernal branch library (500 Cortland at Anderson); turn left at the bottom of the stairs. As always, the meeting is free and open to all.
