Geek Speak Postponed
This week's Geek Speak is postponed, and next week is reserved for  Swarm Days festivities, so please join us on Thursday, October 4, at 4:00 p.m. in Jonas 110 with Dr. Tim Steckline.  He will host,  “Zoot Suits and the Sailor Riots of 1943: Race Terror in Aztlan:”

Seventy-five years have passed since nearly a week of open terror in the streets of Los Angeles was blamed on the style of clothing worn by the victims. In 1941 the high style of working-class minorities had expressed itself in the zoot suit, broad-shouldered and narrow-waisted, featuring wide lapels and a generous drape, with a pair of reet pleats, all topped by a sweep-brimmed hat. The zoot was sported by the young Malcolm X and the wild Cab Calloway. As a flagrant rejection of a subservient posture, the zoot suit won over Mexican-Americans from Texas to California, and especially in Los Angeles. By WW II pachuco culture had adopted the zoot suit as its swaggering trademark. . . . Then, in June of 1943, zoot suits made their wearers into targets of mass assault and battery. For five days sailors on shore leave rioted and brutalized dozens of young Mexican-Americans, many wearing zoots. And from this outbreak of terror, a movement was forged. Viva La Raza.
