Brooklyn & Boyle Ruben Salazar Memorial Tribute
We could never even dream of looking so good if it weren't for the many brilliant visual artists whose work as graced our front page over the few years we've existed. Our very first Ruben Salazar tribute issue cover featured a portrait of Salazar by our very own Barrio Dandy, John Carlos de Luna, whose work we have long admired. In fact, John Carlos is the only artist on the entire East Side, a born-and-bred son of Boyle Heights, who has contributed more than one cover.
We invite you to become part of celebrating a free speech champion and a heroic figure in the Chicano movement, which now finds a new generation of dreamers donning the mantle of change makers, young people and students who are discovering in the history of individuals such a Salazar, their own voices. Reach us on FB, Twitter, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to hear how you can support truly independent arts, culture and community journalism on LA's Greater East Side. We look forward to sharing more with all of you, both in and outside of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, as we reach more and more readers across the state and, yes, even the southwest.
