Through the eyes of one of its own, Stewing in the Melting Pot will touch the hearts of all who have lived between two cultures and who have never felt completely accepted by the mainstream American culture. This is the story of a Mexican-American family struggling to survive in pre-and post-World War II America. Robert Sanabria was four years old when his mother took her four children and fled from an abusive husband in Texas to Los Angeles. There, unable to care for her children, she was forced to place them in a Methodist orphanage. In "The Home" Robert learned that his heritage as a Mexican was not welcome and he was required to abandon his language, his religion, and his culture to become a "real" American. Robert tells the powerful story of "The Home’s", policy of assimilation and how it led to his own development as a confused and identity-starved adult.
