SPARC Art - Ernestine

In 1978, at 14 years old and pregnant, Ernestine arrived at the Great Wall of Los Angeles. Because Judy Baca could only garner juvenile justice funds in the early years, the first 80 kids had to have been arrested once; Ernestine was one of those original 80. A few years ago SPARC interviewed Ernestine at the age of 44. Her testimony is why we do what we do.
