‘Las Tesoros de San Antonio’ screening to be held March 7 in Library Community Room

OLLU will host a screening of “Las Tesoros de San Antonio/A Westside Story” on March 7 at 6 p.m. in the Library Community Room. It is in honor of Women’s History Month.

The documentary film deals with the lives and careers of four renowned South Texas singers: Rita Vidaurri, Blanca Rosa, Beatriz Llamas and Perla Tapatia. Through their stories and music, the audience learns how these women began their careers in a male dominated industry to become successful singer/performers nationally and internationally. The film also shares their personal tragedies that led to retirement and then to their present-day musical resurgence.

The screening is hosted by the Center for Women in Church and Society, the Center for Mexican American Studies and Research, the Humanities and Social Sciences Department and the History Program.
