Episode 1: El Altar y La Vida
In the 80’s, San Francisco’s Real Alternatives Program created a school, RAP High School. We follow the story of the establishment of an altar at RAP’s Bryant Street campus, honoring the youth who died as a result of community violence.
The altar was the first of its kind in a SFUSD school setting. We follow the two agencies, RAP and Instituto Familiar de La Raza (IFR) as they came together through cultural spiritual healing practices as a result of the loss of young lives. We present the various stories from that partnership.
