zoot suit audio chapter

Here's the first of my audio chapters of my book Rebel Rebel . Few articles of clothing have caused riots that resulted in hundreds of arrests, scores of injuries and international headlines. And then again few have the history or social gravitas of the zoot suit- an item that, more than just a jacket and trousers, defined its wearer as part of a culture that, unafraid of the consequences, chose to stand outside of accepted society and was a declaration of freedom and auto-determination among beleaguered minorities. All about racial discrimination its very pertinent right now.
