Film producer and choreographer Debbie Allen will set up cameras in the garage of resident Rose Espinoza on Saturday as part of a cable television series called "Cool Women," dedicated to women who have made fantastic firsts in their fields.
Allen will meet with Elizabeth Martinez, a UCLA professor of information policy who was the first Latino executive director of the American Library Assn. and believes that a child's education should be encouraged outside school.
"I chose Rosie's Garage because I really believe in what [Espinoza] is doing," Martinez said.
For the past nine years, Espinoza has run a student tutoring and support program out of her garage to help youth after school. She has since expanded to two other locations to reach more students, Espinoza said.
