Photo Recap – The Chicharrón Chronicles 01 // 02 // 03

Images from the three The Chicharrón Chronicles events are now online! Catch up with what happened in Historic Filipinotown in the last few weeks.


The Chicharrón Chronicles is a cross-cultural story- gathering project in Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles. Teasing out the bonds that can form over fried pork rinds (chicharrón/chicharon/cracklins) and a shared Spanish colonial history, the project invites community members to break bread and exchange and document stories about labor, language, and food during a series of public events. Attendees had the chance to record their stories for the Historic Filipinotown Archive and for possible inclusion in a multimedia walking tour that illuminates the historical, social and cultural commonalities among the neighborhood’s multicultural community.

The Chicharrón Chronicles is a project of Hidden Hi Fi, a collaboration between Public Matters and Pilipino Workers Center.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit
