Our Signature Project
San Diego Latino Legacy Multimedia Online Book
The Power of Storytelling
Builds knowledge, creates understanding and brings us together.
And now more than ever, our stories need to be told.
Through multimedia, our stories come to life.
San Diego Latino Legacy, Timeline – Milestones – Stories, presented by The San Diego Union-Tribune chronicles San Diego’s Latino experience, including our historic roots, civil rights that highlight the Chicano movement, significant milestones, community evolution, and current momentous events.
Our multimedia online book features embedded video interviews, graphics, images and inspiring first-person storytelling from individuals who have made history or are making history.
The Chapter eras are introduced by San Diego’s most prominent professors from our prestigious universities San Diego State University, UC San Diego and University of San Diego.
Told in a three-part series, Part 1 is now online; Part 2, Spring 2022; and Part 3, Fall 2022.
This digital education tool is an opportunity to inspire our readers to reflect on San Diego’s Latino history—examine where we are today, provide a picture what our future may look like, and understand that there is a role we can play to make a difference for the betterment of humanity.
Our target audience is diverse, ranging from junior high and college-bound students to parents and career employees, including business owners and executives in leadership positions.
This online book is free and accessible to the general public, including educators, students and parents via the Foundation’s website.
