About Zoot Suit

Told from the perspective of Henry Reyna, a wrongfully imprisoned youth, and his personified conscience El Pachuco, Zoot Suit draws from the American immigrant experience during World War II, the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial of 1942, and the Zoot Suit Riots of 1943. Henry and the other members of the 38TH Street gang must navigate a landscape of racial intolerance, unjust law enforcement, and a discriminatory legal system as they are wrongly accused and convicted of murder. The story of their fight for freedom is a powerful example of cultural pride, creative spirit, and self-determination.
