Armando Vasquez-Ramos, Ph.D. will be discussing the upcoming documentary screening of "Ruben Salazar: Man In The Middle" on Monday, March 10, 2014 @ 7:00 p.m. CSULB University Theatre, 1250 Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90840

Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle examines the life and death of pioneering journalist Ruben Salazar, who was killed under mysterious circumstances by a law enforcement officer on August 29, 1970 in the aftermath of the National Chicano Moratorium protest march against the Vietnam war in East Los Angeles. At the heart of the story is Salazar's transformation from a mainstream, establishment reporter to the primary chronicler and supporter of the radical Chicano movement.

This advance screening of Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle will feature a talk by Phil Montez, a key figure in the film and a very close friend of Ruben Salazar. Phil Montez was the director of the Western Regional Office for the U.S. Commission for Civil Rights at the time of Ruben's killing, and taught one of the first 2 Mexican American Studies classes at CSULB, 45 years ago in the spring semester of 1969.
An event organized by the California-Mexico Studies Center to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Ethnic Studies programs at CSULB.
