Video: Cleofas Calleros: An El Paso Visionary | Only In El Paso by KCOS

Cleofas Calleros was an El Paso Visionary, civic leader and passionate historian. He was an immigrant with dreams of becoming a citizen, seeking education and helping others. He not only fulfilled those dreams but sought out to help others just like him, do the same.

He devoted his life to working as a local historian trying to reclaim the Mexican-American history and was not only involved in many civic, religious, and business organizations and institutions defending Mexicans in Texas but was a founder of many philanthropic programs.
