Ricardo Chamberlin (photo donor's son) performing as the character Clippo in a Teatro de los Ni�os anti-migra street skit production. ""Migra"" is Spanish slang for immigration officials. Teatro de los Ni�os was the first Chicano theater group in the United States with children performers. This was performed at Plaza de la Raza Cultural Center for the Arts and Education in Lincoln Park. Ricardo is wearing a red polka dot clown suit with white collar ruffles and a white hat. He also has a green noise maker in his mouth and is maneuvering a marionette with both hands. This image was provided by Martha O. Hetzler for inclusion in the Foto East LA collection.
