Voices of Blackwell: Lionel Salgado

Our latest series is a partnership with the Blackwell School Alliance called  “Voices of Blackwell.” The segregated institution was open from the late nineteenth century and closed in 1965 with the integration of schools in Marfa. The second story we hear is from Lionel Salgado who attended the school from 1941-1951. He went on to serve on the school board and worked for Presidio County for over a decade.
