Echoes of the Mexican Voice

Annenberg students brought the ambitions and activism of 1930s and '40s Mexican American student media into the digital age in the "Echoes of The Mexican Voice" class taught by Professors Félix Gutiérrez and Robert Hernandez and Specialized Journalism (The Arts) graduate student Isabel Castro-Melendez. The 10 students read magazines, newspapers and newsletters produced by youths more than 70 years ago, then used what they found to create stories and pictures for a digital magazine for today’s students to learn how an earlier generation overcame obstacles to make progress through education. Senior Jasmine Torres recreated Mexican Voice magazine linoleum block cover pictures as photos featuring classmates. See more on the beta site:
