The Ballad of Arizona: our First Hundred Years

January 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Similar to NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” but with and Arizona twist, this program uses music, storytelling and live radio-style newscasts to present important but often neglected events in Arizona history. The “Hoosiers”-like story of a Miami, AZ High School basketball team comprised of the sons of Mexican-American mine workers who won the state championship in 1951, and Buffalo soldiers stationed near Nogales who engaged with Mexican regiments in a border clash, are among the compelling stories told.
