Here’s a vision for the future; a video by Adriana Heldiz for the Voice of San Diego introduces us to four individuals engaged in their Barrio Logan community and shaping its development.
Some readers may recognize the last person featured, Joaquín Junco, as a San Diego Free Press contributor. While a Southwestern College student, he provided many cartoons and illustrations for the San Diego Free Press as Junco Canché. The archive of his work is here. (Note: the link is to a list of post “excerpts” that typically feature a short text intro and a feature image. Since Junco’s posts don’t contain text, the excerpt simply has the title and a cropped detail from the full illustration. You’ll need to click on the excerpt’s title or the cropped image in order to view the full work.)
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
