Veronica Embraces Her Past

Roberto Adrian Martinez

Veronica Davila traces her family line back to the original 16 families that founded San Antonio.  While that sounds like a big deal, she tells us it took a while for her to embrace it.

For years she avoided the Canary Islanders' garb that her mother proudly wore to events, sweating in the heat. It took a couple of decades and a reborn urban center for Veronica to fall back in love with the city of her birth. It wasn't long before she found herself sweating in the sun in full period attire.

This story was recorded April 3 at Brick for the Worth Repeating show with the theme Tricentennial.
