In the vitrine
This exhibit commemorated the memory of beloved journalist Ruben Salazar, slain 42 years ago at the Chicano Moratorium held on August 29, 1970, in East Los Angeles. It included a photographic exhibit from the personal collection of Dr. Raúl Ruíz, whose forthcoming book, Silver Dollar Death: The Murder of Ruben Salazar, asks the question: “Why did Ruben Salazar, an American newsman, husband and father have to die covering a domestic news story?”
Dr. Ruíz presented his research at a public event at the CSRC Library on August 29, 2012, in conjunction with the exhibition.
