Laredo Debutantes’ Different Paths to the Ball

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Las Marthas, debutantes Laurita and Rosario discuss their different paths to the Martha Washington Ball — Laurita’s family goes way back with the Society of Martha Washington, while Rosario is a newcomer from across the border — as they participate in the fall rehearsal, a few months before the big event.

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
