Día de los Muertos was brought to East Los Angeles in the 1970’s by the folks at Self Help Graphics and Art, as a way to enrich and reclaim Chicano identity. Since then, the celebration has grown to epic proportions with renditions happening in communities all around the world. This video by KCETOnline follows the story of artist Ofelia Esparza, who continues the tradition of building altars to honor and remember loved ones passed.
