Video Descriptions

Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle

Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle is an investigative look at the life and mysterious death of pioneering journalist Ruben Salazar. At the heart of the story is Salazar's transformation from a mainstream, establishment reporter for the LA Times to primary chronicler and supporter of the radical Chicano movement of the late 1960s. Killed under mysterious circumstances by a law enforcement officer in 1970, Salazar became an instant martyr to Latinos—many of whom had criticized his reporting during his lifetime.
