MSNBC aired a new documentary, part of “Lockup” series, called “Wake Up Call”: Orange County, last night, which featured life inside the Orange County Jail. Here is how they described the program in their press release:
California conjures images of well-manicured neighborhoods and a surfer culture that gave birth to the Beach Boys, and has existed ever since. But blending seamlessly into the heart of one of its busiest neighborhoods is a reminder of the county’s other side. Inside Orange County Jail, confinement takes a dark turn for a light-hearted teenager, but provides a new beginning for an old bank robber. And a mother who has put drugs before her son gets another chance.
You can watch this program, if you missed it, on Dec. 31, at 9 pm, on MSNBC.
As part of the 2010 Mexico’s bicentennial festivities, the City of Santa Ana is co-sponsoring the Mendez v. Westminster documentary at Chapman University on Monday, September 13 at 7:00 p.m. (please see attached for more details). This special screening of the award winning documentary is open to the public and is also co-sponsored by Chapman University and the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange County. In addition to the screening, an expert panel has been assembled to discuss the legal and social implications from this landmark civil rights case. We expect a great turn-out for the screening and a wine and cheese reception with Mariachis will precede the film at 6:30 p.m.
