Tell Them Who We Are


The Laquieniean Drill Team and Drum Squad has been a feature of the South Central Los Angeles landscape since the 1950’s. While African-American drill teams have a long history in this country, this film focuses on the struggles of just one team, rather small and sometimes ragtag group, as the teenage members, their parents and supporters go through one competitive season. Interviews with alumni of the team, current members and the found, intercut with footage of performances all over Southern California, combine to give a picture of the African-American community.
