Two young Mexican American men stand in front of a house, their hands and arms leaning on a wooden railing. Small houses stand on a hillside strewn with wooden fences. Text reads:
Beneath Dodger Stadium lies a lost village.
Home to generations of Mexican Americans, Chavez Ravine was a close-knit village just miles from downtown Los Angeles. But in the 1950s, the city forcefully evicted the area's residents, razing their homes to make room for a new baseball stadium. 

CHAVEZ RAVINE brings to life a neighborhood lost to corruption, city politics and corporate greed.
