... and the poets mourn

Posted By on Wed, Feb 13, 2008 at 12:00 AM

It brings much sadness to announce the death of San Antonio-born poet and hero raúlsalinas.

Last night he passed on and left his mark on not only the Chicano poetry movement but the many causes he fought for. As his site labeled him “the Cockroach poet,” he paved the way for poets set out on a mission. His contributions to such causes as human rights and social justice reflect a life of constant struggle to better society.

We applaud his tireless efforts and our thoughts are with his family. Check the Current for more information and a tribute to him in an upcoming issue.
