Last year, the family of the late journalist Ruben Salazar donated his personal archives to the USC Libraries. Now, a new digital project based on the collection will provide greater public awareness of the award-winning reporter's life and career.
Created by USC Annenberg students and directed by USC Annenberg professors Félix Gutiérrez and Robert Hernandez, the Ruben Salazar Project features student-written articles about Salazar that incorporate selected documents from the Ruben Salazar papers collection. Students also created an interactive timeline that highlights photographs, news clippings, and personal documents from the Salazar archive.
"The Ruben Salazar Project is a continuation — and perhaps culmination — of about a 30-year interest in Ruben Salazar here in the School of Journalism,” Gutiérrez said.
