Intro by Brent E. Beltrán
With the battle looming over the future of Barrio Logan, due to Maritime Industry’s refusal to accept the Barrio Logan Community Plan update, I feel it is necessary to give voters of the city of San Diego a little history of Barrio Logan and highlight the issues residents face. In June, eligible San Diego voters will go to the polls to vote on wether to approve the community plan or reject it.
Over the next few weeks I will post a video on Sundays that highlights the community of Barrio Logan and the beauty within San Diego’s most historic barrio.
This week’s video, To Reach My Goals – Education in Barrio Logan, documents the challenges barrio youth have in school and highlights the Barrio Logan College Institute and their work to get neighborhood kids into college.
Last week’s video, Remembering Our Past – History of Barrio Logan, can be seen here.
Many thanks to the fine folks at Media Arts Center San Diego and the teens who created these amazing short documentaries. These videos were created from their perspective. For more Teen Producers Project videos check out their YouTube channel.
