Thank you Sal Castro, on behalf of all the hundreds of thousands of students who benefited from your life’s work. You taught students to stand up for their rights and that it was beautiful to be Chicano.

Words from Community Leaders

Paula Crisostomo, 1968 Walkout Student Leader

“Sal had a personality and presence that lit up the room, he had this uncanny capability of connecting with young Chicano Latino students. You could have been one in a room of hundreds and he made you feel as if he were speaking directly to you. He had a great sense of humor and he used that humor to engage and educate.”

Dr. Robin Avelar-LaSalle

“We still think our teacher is a rock star! We cannot forget to teach the younger brothers and sisters coming up about Mr. Castro and the Chicano movement and struggles that we had and still fight for today.”

Justice Carlos Moreno

“Sal was a great man, a true force of nature, a man on a mission. His mission was to always improve the educational opportunities for Chicano students, beginning with his early days as a playground director to going to college himself and becoming one of the greatest teachers in history. He really is a true vindication and social icon, not just for Latinos in Los Angeles and California, but really a national hero.”

Maria Elena Yepes, Director, East Los Angeles Community College

“Sal Castro awakened the consciousness of many Chicanos and Chicanas. His legacy lives on in those who believe it and continue to fight for educational justice. We owe Sal an incredible debt of gratitude. Que viva Sal Castro!”

Congressman Esteban E. Torres (Ret.)

“I was impressed from the first time I met him in 1968. As a Garfield High School graduate, I supported Sal. It’s a proud moment for me to be here today with his family, followers, and students. This is a part of history.”

Dr. Carlos Haro

“He is the major reformer in education of our era, he really touched a generation– the Chicano generations of the 60′s and 70′s. He helped us establish an identity and motivated us to continue our education and to become professionals. It was a creation of a new class, never seen before in the Mexican-American community. We have to continue the struggle, he lived the life of struggle and it was all with the intention of serving his community, especially the young people who lived and attended the schools he fought for.”

Dr. Daniel Solorzano

“His commitment to the Latino community, especially on issues of educational equity and leadership, are the issues that will stand the test of time. He will be remembered for his legacy and the many leaders he helped develop, frame, encourage, and support. He is an amazing person.”

And on the effort’s latest single “4th of July,” which Billboard is premiering its video exclusively, he sings to his lady about how–though they’ve been together for a while–the fireworks are still crackling.

“You’re still the flame that’s burning deep in my soul,” he belts to her in the intimate clip. Watch it and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Rapper Tone Loc collapses on stage in Iowa PDF Print E-mail

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Rapper Tone Loc collapsed on stage while performing in Iowa this weekend.

Loc, whose real name is Anthony T. Smith, collapsed after finishing a song during a Saturday night concert on a bridge in downtown Des Moines, according to the Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/ZAFc0j ). Three of the newspaper's employees who were at the show said people attended to Loc, 47, for several minutes before fans were asked to leave.

Loc's condition wasn't immediately clear Sunday. He wasn't listed publicly as a patient at any Des Moines hospital, and no one answered the phone Sunday morning at the bar that sponsored the concert.

Loc's representative did not immediately respond to phone and email messages Sunday.

It wasn't the rapper's first time collapsing on stage. Loc, who is best known for his 1980s hits "Funky Cold Medina" and "Wild Thing," collapsed and had a seizure during a 2009 concert in Pensacola, Fla. Authorities said he had apparently overheated.

Loc also collapsed in 1995 while attending a Los Angeles Lakers game. The reason he collapsed wasn't given.

Loc has also appeared in a number of television shows and movies, including "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" with Jim Carrey and "Heat" with Al Pacino. Loc has also been the voice of several animated characters.

Rapper Lil Wayne suffers seizure PDF Print E-mail
Written by CNN

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Grammy-winning and multiplatinum-selling rapper Lil Wayne suffered a seizure and "is recovering," his record label's publicist said Friday.

"I'm good everybody," read a message on Lil Wayne's Twitter account. "Thnx for the prayers and love."

While acknowledging a medical issue, members of the New Orleans' artist's camp shot down reports that he was near death.

"Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe ... that's false!!" tweeted Mack Maine, the president of Lil Wayne's Young Money label, around 5:20 p.m. (8:20 p.m. ET) Friday.

Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with the Young Money record label, acknowledged that Lil Wayne had a seizure.

The public relations department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles hospital where the rapper is reportedly being treated, did not confirm or deny that Lil Wayne is there, per its policy.

Maine didn't offer much detail, though he did say that he and Lil Wayne had been watching the Syracuse University Orange play Georgetown in the Big East men's basketball tournament.

"Wayne is alive and well!" the record label president wrote on Twitter.

The rapper's independent publicist, Kia Selby, said only, "Lil Wayne is doing well." She strongly denied reports he was in a medically induced coma, as reported by TMZ.

Born Dwayne Carter, Lil Wayne is one of the rap world's most successful artists. He won best rap album for "Tha Carter III" at the 2008 Grammy awards, and took home three more Grammys the following year.

Beyond winning over critics, he's also been a commercial success. Last September, Billboard reported the rapper had tallied 109 hits on its Hot 100, surpassing the record previously held by Elvis Presley.

But he's also run into trouble outside the studio and stage.

Lil Wayne was arrested in 2007 outside New York City's Beacon Theater after police said they found a .40-caliber pistol on his tour bus. He ended up pleading guilty to felony gun charges and spending eight months at New York's Rikers Island jail.
