In a Los Angeles Neighborhood, Teenagers Report the News

The Beat (Pulso de Boyle Heights, in Spanish) is a bilingual newspaper written largely by teenagers from the Boyle Heights neighborhood on the east side of Los Angeles. In the coming years, the residents of Boyle Heights may be in greater need than ever of a publication that tells their stories.
For the working-class neighborhood of Boyle Heights, a newspaper written by youth might be more important than ever.
