In 1943, with the country two years into an escalating World War, the streets of Los Angeles erupted in mob violence. This incident, known as the ‘Zoot Suit Riots,’ is often relegated to a footnote of history and even considered amusing due to its association with a clothing fad. But the Zoot Suit Riots were a brutal event that influenced the Latino and Chicano civil rights movements and minority youth culture for years to follow.
