A "Juneteenth" rememberance: confronting racism in Oregon

June 19th marks the 144th anniversary of the landing of federal troops in Galveston, Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation and finally bring slavery to an end throughout the United States. "Juneteenth" has not only become a day to commemorate the end of slavery but to reflect on the African American experience - from progress made to challenges that remain. As Oregonians celebrate the 150th anniversary of their statehood, Juneteenth is an opportunity to look at how we are contributing - or not - to overcoming racism in Oregon.

The new award-winning documentary film "The Garden" opens at the Hollywood Theatre this week.  The film follows the inspiring struggle of a large, vibrant community garden in South Central Los Angeles, which arose as a place of healing after the L.A. Riots in 1992.  A backroom deal between the city and a land developer threatens to close the garden.  "The Garden" tells the story of mostly Latin American immigrants who organized and fought back.  Toni Tabora-Roberts spoke with Julie Bergman Sender, one of the Executive Producers, and Vivianne Nacif, a Co-Producer, about the film.
