Ruben Salazar (1928-1970)

Ruben Salazar was a reporter for the Los Angeles Times whose progressive writings were avidly read by many in the Chicano community. He was killed at age 42 outside the Silver Dollar Bar on Whittier Boulevard while covering the Chicano Moratorium, an anti-Viet Nam war demonstration in East LA. He was hit by a tear gas projectile fired by a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department deputy.
