Free Tuesday Talk: My Life Making History TV

Historic Places is a KPBS series highlighting the region’s rich and diverse history, starting from the First People of the Kumeyaay Nation, the Spanish, Mexicans, Americans, to the first African American’s living in Julian, the first Chinese immigrants who worked the railroad and so many other fascinating people, topics and historic sites throughout the region.

Elsa Sevilla, Executive Producer of Historic Places for ten years, recently joined the San Diego History Center as the Director of External Affairs or “Ambassador”. Elsa is a three-time Emmy nominee and multi-award-winning journalist, filmmaker and small business owner. She spent 29-years as a TV journalist and history filmmaker for KGTV-10, KPBS-TV and her own TV Production company, Sevilla Productions. Elsa’s passion is history, education and preservation. Her new role at SDHC is a perfect fit!
