It is appropriate to point out that one of Selena Quintanilla's biggest hits was a song titled "Como la Flor," as we work hard to bring you another beautiful issue of Brooklyn & Boyle. We are happy to note that our new issue heralds the full blossom of the spring season, a season that brings us baseball, a Mother's Day celebration and a Father's Day celebration as well as Cinco de Mayo festivities across the country.

Our upcoming April issue features a historical recollection from the year music fans the world over lost a cherished flower, a bright young star cut down in her prime. It is a piece from the archives of a reporter who was there providing a first hand perspective during the days following her death. We will also bring you a report from the recent tribute to Selena Quintanilla, the budding Latino music star who was lost tragically 20 years ago in Corpus Christi, Texas, here in downtown Los Angeles at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes.

With a cover painting by San Pedro artist Michelle Júarez AKA Pinchi Michi titled Earth Angel (mixed media on wood panel), our newest issue will also offer a memoir by arts visionary, Radiotron founder and interdisciplinary artist Carmelo Alvarez which detail a breakfast he had with late labor leader Cesar Chavez, being that we just celebration what would have been the legendary Chicano activist's 88th birthday.

Brooklyn & Boyle is a print and online magazine dedicated to art, culture and community in Boyle Heights and the Greater East Side of Los Angeles, as defined by the residents of neighborhoods such as Boyle Heights, City Terrace, East LA, Lincoln Heights, El Sereno, South Pasadena, Cypress Park, Arroyo Seco, Highland Park whose lifetime roots in those communities give their stakeholder status that cannot be erased or replaced by gentrification and economic displacement. These are places which in culture and creativity every bit as creative and cultured as one another in which hybrid language and culture have always mattered and have always been every bit as developed and sophisticated as that produced and projected elsewhere in the L.A. Metropolitan Area. Our editorial platform and policies, above all, are based on support support for community integrity and an acknowledgement of--as well as a respect for--the history and heritage of those whose families, have long called these East Side neighborhoods home.
