Cinco de Mayo & Red-Brown Journalism


April 28, 2009

Saludos and hope this finds you well.

We are down to the final week before Cinco de Mayo. The students in my Red-Brown
Journalism & Communications class at the University of Arizona have done
phenomenal work. Thanks to everyone who has supported them thus far.

The Red-Brown Journalism exhibit at the main library at the U of A is up until
May 7, our Newspaper -- El Coraje: La Nueva Generacion has been sent to the
printers... It was inspired by the original Coraje which ceased publication in
the 1960s. The highlight of the student-research and written and edited
publication is the role of women in the 1800s and 1900s. It also features a
connection to the codices -- arguably, the first journalism of the continent.
Now, the History of Red-Brown Journalism & Communications student symposium and
Cinco de Mayo Program remain. The highlight of the Tues May 5 evening
event will be the Tierra Birthmarks Play - put on by Tucson High School's Raza Studies Department. Please see attached flyer. If you print, you may need to resize.
(A major scholarship announcement will also be made at that time).

We are still short a little bit on funds. If you haven't donated already, it is
now possible to donate via credit card electronically. If you?ve already
received this or already donated, please forward it to someone who might want
to donate.

We are accepting gifts from $25 to $100 or more. Of course, if you donate, you
