In celebration of the centennial of the Mexican Revolution, USC and LACMA will host The Corrido of LA. Students in grades 7–12 throughout Los Angeles are invited to commemorate the Mexican Revolution by composing a corrido, or ballad song, about the city they call home. Since the nineteenth century the corrido functioned as the people’s oral “newspaper,” documenting events of everyday social and political life.
