Joaquin Murrieta ' My quest for justice'
During the chaotic and discriminatory Gold-Rush era, Joaquin Murrieta was considered a bandit in the eye of authorities. Thirty years later, Joaquin recounts the dark times and sets the record straightthe head that was put in a jar by California Ranger Harry Love was not his!

According to Wikipedia: "Joaquin Murrieta Carrillo (sometimes spelled Murieta or Murietta) (1829  July 25, 1853), also called The Robin Hood of the West or the Robin Hood of El Dorado, was a famous vaquero, and gold miner in California during the California Gold Rush of the 1850s. The popular legend of Joaquin Murrieta is that of a peace-loving man driven to seek revenge when he and his brother were falsely accused of stealing a mule. His brother was hanged and Joaquin horsewhipped. His young wife was gang raped and in one version she died in Joaquin's arms. Swearing revenge, Joaquin hunted down all who had violated his sweetheart. He embarked on a short but violent career that brought death to his Anglo tormentors. The state of California then offered a reward of up to $5000 for Joaquin "dead or alive." Joaquin was never found.

In 1919, Johnston McCulley supposedly received his inspiration for his fictional character Don Diego de la Vega  better known as Zorro  from the 1854 book entitled The Life and Adventures of JoaquĆ­n Murieta: The Celebrated California Bandit by John Rollin Ridge. John heard about a Mexican miner who had turned to banditry and was intrigued by the story."

Written by Silvia Gonzalez and directed by David Acevedo of Teatro Latino de San Francisco, Gonzalez's play tells not only Joaquin's story but also touches upon the lives of the Chinese, the Blacks, the Native Americans, the Portuguese and those who lived and worked under the laws of the time that were made to get rid of them. Enjoy seeing a diverse cast of actors in this exciting historical play.
