Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin (photo donor) performing in a Teatro de los Niños anti-migra street skit production. "Migra" is Spanish slang for immigration officials. Teatro de los Niños 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. Vibiana is wearing an orange type of a clown dress that has numbers in different color plaids on it. She has black fabric tightly covering her entire head and is tied at the neck. On top of her head is what looks to be red curly yarn that piles up several inches high. She is holding a broom in her left hand. In the background, although blurry, are John Chamberlin (photo donor's son) playing the snare drum and symbol and the children audience standing around them.
