Dating from the aftermath of the U.S.-Mexican War, the annual debutante ball in Laredo, Texas is unlike any other. Las Marthas follows two Mexican American girls carrying this gilded tradition on their shoulders during a time of economic uncertainty and tension over immigration.
Presented in partnership with the Girls Coalition of Southwestern Pennsylvania<http://girlscoalitionswpa.org/?elq=88c9796a8e514f32a124b2762dfee0cb&elqCampaignId=126>.
