“Judy Baca’s “Pancho Trinity” subverts the kitsch image of the “sleeping Mexican,” turning it into a medium to convey historical and informative illustrations depicting the dangers, sacrifices, and challenges Mexican migrants face when crossing the border. She also address the ongoing struggles to adapt and survive within the United States, relating these experience through the concepts of “familia” (family), “tierra” (the land), and “el espíritu” (the afterlife).”
