Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle examines the life and mysterious death of pioneering journalist Ruben Salazar. At the heart of the story is Salazar’s transformation from a mainstream, middle-of-the-road reporter to a supporter and primary chronicler of the radical Chicano movement of the late 1960s. Guest Speaker: Phillip Rodriguez, director.
Presented in conjunction with LA Plaza’s exhibition “Patriotism in Conflict: Fighting for Country and Comunidad.”
