Season 6, Episode 26 Chavez Ravine: A Los Angeles Story
First Aired: June 7, 2005
“Chavez Ravine: A Los Angeles Story” chronicles the taking of land on which Dodger Stadium sits---and the uprooting of people who lived there. It's told in part with still photos taken in 1949. The next year, the city condemned the area for public housing. But money and politics being what they are, it was never built, and when the Dodgers arrived in 1958, the land was theirs for the taking. “It was like dancing on a grave,” says one former resident who attended a game.
