Screening: Netflix’s Gentefied

Friday Sep 18 - Oct 16 | 7:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Los Angeles wouldn’t be the city it is today without Mexican Americans and their vibrant, influential culture. Their contributions have been so powerful over the decades, specifically on the West Coast, that Netflix’s latest dramedy, Gentefied, attempts to tackle the complex history of the culture’s evolvement, as well as how a neighborhood in East L.A. is currently grappling with gentrification. Gentrification, realistically-speaking, is occurring at such a rapid pace, especially in Los Angeles, but nothing can defeat a Mexican American family’s strength to stand by each other in times of turmoil. Gentefied demonstrates just that in a very beautiful and moving way.

About The Horned Frog Yearbook

Yearbook Portrait Days
The Horned Frog is a 500-page, full-color book that covers academics, athletics, organizations, fraternity and sorority life, student life, and all of the people on campus. It is the only official ongoing history of TCU. The yearbook is student-produced. Our staff meets weekly, maintains office hours, and covers nearly every facet of campus. The Horned Frog is produced on Apple computers utilizing the Adobe Creative Suite, and is printed by Balfour Publishing Company in Dallas. Even though the covers and layouts have changed over the years, the yearbook staff continues to maintain the same goal - to preserve the University’s history and traditions. Over 100 years later, the yearbook staff has continued the same way of preserving history. The yearbook office has one of the best collections of TCU’s history - displaying books dating back over 100 years. The Horned Frog family is invited to come to the office and flip through the books that we house. Seeing Horned Frogs from decades ago really brings into perspective the meaning of being a Horned Frog forever.
