Quickly at San Francisco Excelsior District was Grand Opening on Nov. 1st, 2014 (Saturday)
In the 1980s, there were several civil wars in Central America including El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala. Refugees from these countries relocated to big cities including San Francisco. There were also many temporary workers from Mexico who came to the US to work on farms. At that time, the Excelsior district which is next to the Mission District became predominantly Latino. Julie and Richard Mitra, each from Asian and Mexican backgrounds, formed a family in the Excelsior and share their story about the early struggles with prejudice.
