Pachucos: Not Just Mexican-American Males or Juvenile Delinquents


Zoot suit rioters celebrate after being acquitted, October 26, 1944.
"In partnership with the Vincent Price Art Museum: The mission of the Vincent Price Art Museum is to serve as a unique educational resource through the exhibition, interpretation, collection, and preservation of works in all media. 'Tastemakers & Earthshakers: Notes from Los Angeles Youth Culture, 1943 – 2016' is a multimedia exhibition that traverses eight decades of style, art, and music, and presents vignettes that consider youth culture as a social class, distinct issues associated with young people, principles of social organization, and the emergence of subcultural groups. Citing the 1943 Zoot Suit Riots as a seminal moment in the history of Los Angeles, the exhibition emphasizes a recirculation of shared experiences across time, reflecting recurrent and ongoing struggles and triumphs. ..."
