10/19/10: Pablo O'Higgins

Salt Lake City, Utah – Pablo O'Higgins is well-known in Mexico as a painter devoted to portraying images "of the people." But few know he grew up as Paul Higgins, the son of one of the attorneys who prosecuted legendary labor figure Joe Hill. How did a blond-haired, blue-eyed kid from Salt Lake City become an ardent supporter of revolutionary politics and a celebrated Mexican muralist? Guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks with author Susan Vogel about O'Higgins' transformation and his legacy. (Rebroadcast)

  • On Saturday, October 23 at 3:30 p.m., Susan Vogel will speak at the Salt Lake City Public Library as part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival. Festival events begin today and run through Saturday. For a full schedule, click here
