Serna Center presents 'Journey of Dreams'

The Serna Center at California State University, Sacramento will present a special screening of a segment of the acclaimed PBS Latino drama "American Family: Journey of Dreams" at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 13 at the center. The center will host a reception prior to the film at 5 p.m.

The show was the first drama series to air on broadcast television featuring a Latino cast, and the first original primetime American episodic drama on PBS in decades, according to the network.

Now in its second season, the series follows the Gonzalez family through major historical events of the 20th century. Its stars include Edward James Olmos, Constance Marie, Yancey Arias, Jesse Borrego, Patricia Velasquez, Kate del Castillo and Raquel Welch, with special appearances by Sonia Braga. The center will show the first episode of the new season which began this month.

The Serna Center presentation is sponsored by the center along with the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, KVIE Channel 6 and PBS.
