Film tells of battle vs. Hispanic stereotypes

A documentary about how Hispanic journalists worked to dismantle stereotypes about the Latino community in California will be screened in Tucson on Tuesday.

“Below the Fold: The Pulitzer That Defined Latino Journalism,” by Roberto Gudiño, is about a group of reporters at the Los Angeles Times in 1984.

Gudiño interviewed those involved with the original articles for the 26-minute documentary.

The University of Arizona’s Media, Democracy & Policy Initiative produced the film, which will be shown at 7 p.m. at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

The three-year-old, nonprofit initiative was created to look into how the Hispanic population was represented.

The screening will include a discussion and guests including Nancy Rivera Brooks, George Ramos, Louis Sahagun and Frank Sotomayor.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Loft. To learn more, call 626-3731.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
