Anthony J. Garcia on Ludlow: El Grito de Las Minas

Amongst the striking coal miners and their family members murdered by the Colorado National Guard during the Ludlow Massacre were five Mexican-American children. To commemorate this almost-forgotten chapter of history, Su Teatro's Anthony J. Garcia wrote Ludlow: El Grito de Las Minas (The Cry of the Mines); he's directing a production of the play that will open tomorrow, March 13. In advance of the opening, Westword spoke with Garcia about the Ludlow Massacre, Chicano history and Su Teatro's new show.
