• Image of Memorial for Rubén

From the newly published collaborative Day of the Dead themed series with artist Sergio Sánchez Santamaría "A donde irán los muertos". Rubén Salazar was the first journalist from main-stream media to report on the Chicano community. His photograph sits among mementos that make up a an altar tribute to his life. He was killed by shot in the head with a tear gas canister by a deputy of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. He was shot while he sat at the Silver Dollar Bar in East L.A., taking a break from covering the Chicano Moratorium, a protest against the disproportionate amount of Chicanos being drafted into the war.
