Everyday Life of Chico Real and Lolo Mendoza, American Musicians

From our nation’s family photo album at the Library of Congress, Mexican Americans Chico Real and Lolo Mendoza pose with their guitars in Kingsville, Texas on September 1, 1940.  The photo is from the Lomax Collection of folk musicians, proving that despite what 21st century politicians may say, Latinx were always woven into the history of the United States.  (Image from Lomax Collection at the US Library of Congress)
