Series I. Tavera Personal Papers

Scope and Contents

This series contains teaching materials and play manuscripts, notes, and reviews relating to the plays La Victima and Reunion. Reunion is thought to be the first Chicano theater piece to directly address homosexuality and homophobia in the Chicano community. Written by University of California Berkeley student Edgar Pomo (B.A. English, 1983), Reunion was performed by Teatro Gusto and directed by Hank Tavera at the Capp Street Playhouse in 1983. Reunion materials include play manuscripts, direction and production notes, stage design painting and sketches, a guestbook, correspondence, clippings, and printed materials related to gay and lesbian organizations and events in the Bay Area. Tavera’s teaching materials include syllabi from Chicano studies courses at Santa Barbara City College (1975-1977), readings, and the by-laws of the Association of Mexican American Educators.
