Julio Salgado, Long Beach State Student and Proud DREAMer, Gets Attention for His Dream Act-Themed Art
In September, he was profiled on KPCC-FM 89.3's criminally under-read Multi-American blog, and Salgado just got a hat tip from the influential journal ColorLines. It's personal for me because Salgado was my producer for my KPFK-FM 90.7 radio show, one wickedly talented young man who couldn't get an internship with the Long Beach Press-Telegram because he's undocumented. Salgado is also the undocumented college student I gave a shout-out to in 2007, when I won the Los Angeles Press Club President's Award, urging newspapers to give him an internship; none did, the fools. Congrats, Julio, on the well-deserved attention, and keep the faith...and everyone else can read Salgado's comic strip and musings at his blog, Notas from the Beach.
