DAY OF THE DEAD. November 2 is set aside in Mexico to remember and celebrate the dead. This Day of the Dead, University of California law students are creating an altar to remember the Latino victims of hate crimes. In the days leading up to this holiday, Obama signed a law to expand the definition of hate crimes and prohibit assaults on people based on sexual orientation. We also talk with a maker of Day of the Dead masks and with the curator of a new exhibit of skulls and skeletons by Mexican printmakers Jose Guadalupe Posada and Manuel Manilla.
