The Virgin of Guadalupe in Los Angeles

Wednesday, May 10 2006

The Virgin of Guadalupe appears on walls all over Los Angeles.

In East L.A., she rests near a poem that reads in part, “Think of where we used to kick it... not of where I was shot.”

At La Colmena mini-market off Avenue 50 in Highland Park, the Queen of Angels accepts food stamps. And on the side of a Koreatown market at Kenmore and Beverly, near Cesar Chavez Avenue, she watches crates of Coke.
