Photographs by Andy McMillan / Text by Maya Dusenbery

Between 1929 and 1974, North Carolina sterilized more than 7,500 of its residents. Most were operated on without their consent, having been deemed “feebleminded” and unfit to reproduce by the state Eugenics Board. Eighty-five percent were women; about 40 percent were black or Native American. As many as 2,000 victims are thought to still be alive.  [Read more.]

In 1942, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) launched an all-out “war on crime” that systematically ended up targeting Chicana/o youth. Under such conditions & despite lack of evidence on August 1942, 22 Chicanos were arrested & charged with murder in what is known as the Sleepy Lagoon Case. Forgotten in history is the fact that Chicanas were also arrested. Dora Barrios, Frances Silva, and Lorena Encinas (pictured) were initially arrested & a total of 8 Chicanas were charged by the juvenile court system with the crime of “rioting” thus declaring the girls wards of the state & sent to the Ventura School for Girls. Even after the case was dismissed & the boys freed, the girls remained in the system until they turned 21.
