Jazz Owls by Margarita Engle is a recent project that I am proud to have done art for. (cover and b&w interiors). It is the story of the so called Zoot Suit Riots of 1943 done as a novel in verse by Margarita in a very loving, truthful and conscious way! It is important to know this history to avoid allowing anyone to push us back in time to repeat this sad part of history of this country.

From Margarita: "I hope Jazz Owls will help young readers understand how World War II changed the roles of women, as well as the hopes and dreams of Latinos in the U.S." -- Young People’s Poet Laureate Margarita Engle

Thanks to Reka Simonsen and Atheneum Books commissioning me and for being so great to work with!

LA1992 exhibit at @caaminla includes history on Zoot Suit Riots in which not only Mexican American youth were attacked but any POC youth wearing them...white sailors also rampaged through Bronzeville, the Black community that thrived in Little Tokyo during the forced incarceration of Japanese Americans. What the exhibit didn't mention is it was also the first time youths of color from different communities, Black, Mexican, Filipinos banded together to defend themselves against racist attacks. #CAAM #lahistory #zootsuit #zootsuitriots

Los Angeles, 1943 - A series of racial attacks against Mexican-American youth begins the Zoot Suit Riots. For seven days, mobs of white military servicemen roamed the streets invading bars, restaurants, and theaters looking for those dressed down in the distinctive zoot suit. Pachucos who were caught by the mob were beaten and had thier suits slashed and torn off from them. By the end of riots, the mob of servicemen were attacking Mexican-Americans wether they were wearing zoot suits or not. The Los Angeles Zoot Suit Riots also triggered similar attacks against zoot suiters in Oakland, San Diego, and Chicago.

Teens posing for the camera in a South Central LA neighborhood, mid 1940s. This photo was in my grandmas stacks of pics, it's their house in the back, I think these are her sisters. First thought was, I'm sure those are BB guns but dang!!! #southcentral #vintagelosangeles #vintagela #losangeles1940s #zootsuitriots

Zoot Suit (1981) was one of the first films to showcase and explore the complicated racial tensions and political landscape affecting Mexican Americans in the 1940s. The film contextualizes the lives and struggles of pachucas and pachucos leading up to the #ZootSuitRiots on LA’s streets in 1943. The historical significance of Zoot Suit also extends beyond the big screen and on to the stage. It was the first Chicano play on Broadway (1979) and its production marked the first professionally produced Chicano play.
On Saturday, August 20, celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Chicano film #ZootSuit with an outdoor screening of the film 📽 a vintage fashion show, and a pachuco dance contest! #LAvidapachuca #LAPlazaLA #free

Featured is one of the few surviving #zootsuits. It came from an estate they believe belonged to an African American man from Harlem. I asked the curator why so few of these zoot suits exist. She says quite a few were sliced and damaged by the police, as those who wore it were often profiled #zootsuitriots. Another reason is extra fabric was needed during the war. And finally, the curator notes that when men use clothing, they often don't keep it but throw it out. Also featured in this sequence are some culturally-appropriated looks from #jeremyscott
