Juan talks about El Tecolote's origins in La Raza Journalism at SF State, looking for an independent outlet for the stories that came out of the class. He remembers early days publishing out of people's kitchens, how existing coverage of the Mission was often negative, and people welcomed the opportunity to tell their own stories.
