Unseen Documents with Ariel Goldberg.
Have you heard of the New York Photo League? It was a predominantly Jewish school, social group and center for debate on social documentary photography from 1936 to 1951. In this talk, Ariel Goldberg, author of several books, including The Estrangement Principle and The Photographer, will be talking about the group’s lesbian, queer and trans undercurrents. They’ll also be discussing the cross-sections of Jewish assimilation of immigrant Jewish League photographers with closeted queer life in the mid-20th century. Come learn more about this slice of Jewish history at this enlightening talk. 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3. Jewish History Museum, 564 S. Stone Ave. Free.

Valdez Main Library, and now you get to see the results on display throughout March.

Stone Ave. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 10 am. To 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Free.

As part of their Tuesday Night Classics series, Harkins Theatres is screening the film that celebrated the life and music of Chicano rock ‘n’ roll star Ritchie Valens. With a celebrated acting role from Lou Diamond Phillips, La Bamba is considered a standout of the “Hispanic Hollywood” film period of the late ’80s and ’90s. It should make sense the film carries such a legacy, as Valens himself (who died at only 17 years old!) has left such a massive impact on music in such a short amount of time. In 2017, La Bamba was even selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3. 5755 W. Arizona Pavilions Drive & 5455 S. Calle Santa Cruz. $5.
