Jaime Gomez was a founding member of the grassroots Chicano theater group Teatro Cometa. Founded in 1979, the troupe was active throughout 1980s in and around Fullerton, California. Embodying the concept of “Rasquachismo,” the group endeavored to use their art to educate people about significant issues within their community. Their work incorporated topics such as gang violence and immigration, including issues facing undocumented workers. This collection contains Mr. Gomez’ papers, posters, photographs, and newspaper clippings.
