Editor's Corner.

September 16, 2010, marks the historic 200th Anniversary of El Grito Father Miguel Hidalgo’s courageous declaration for Mexican Independence, on the steps of the cathedral in the city of Dolores in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.

In 1998 the story of El Grito was written as a play by the students of Solano Avenue School in Los Angeles, as well as composed in the song form of a classic Mexican corrido.

The stirring words of the young students’ corrido were put to music by presidential Medal of the Arts winner Lalo Guererro, and performed on September 16 at the school.

To celebrate the courage of the Mexican people and the Mexican Bicentennial the corrido has now been illustrated in this commemorative book by the students of Solano Avenue School today.
