Subject

Oral History with Angie Godina

Description

Abstract: Born in California, came to El Monte as a young girl, lived in Medina Court and then moved to South El Monte, leaving at age 14, returning at age 28. Mother was daughter of landholding Mexican-American in Riverside who married a Native American woman, father’s parents were from Guanajuanto. Family worked in agriculture, went north to camps (Angie sometimes went with them). Remembers that she and her mother would not be served in the Woolworth’s on Valley Mall, and that schools had been segregated and racism/discrimination still persisted in schools. Raised her children in El Monte, and comparative memories of childhood and parenting are very rich. Remembers going to the El Monte and Tumbleweed Theaters, where you could pay in bottle caps or coins.
