Sacramento in Sacramento County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Rededication of El Centro Mexicano Plaque
September 16, 2011
The Comité Centro Mexicano commemorates the same respect and sense of equality dictated by this historical plaque. With great honor we re-dedicate it in honor of all humanity on this date.
From 1948 to 1975, El Centro Mexicano, adjacent to Southside Park at 2216 6th Street, was the primary community center for Sacramento's population of Mexican descent.
El Comité Centro Mexicano conmemora el mismo respeto y sentido de igualidad dictados en esta placa histórica. Con gran honor rededicamos a toda la humanidad en esta fecha.
