War, crime, drought, poverty have been represented strongly in journalism for generations.

They take up column inches and broadcast minutes. But while well-explained and intellectually understood, words often fall short in translating the full meaning of these and many other issues. The power of photographs to communicate the desperation of poverty, the fear of crime, the complexity of war, and the impact of the news on people and the environment is incalculable. 

San Antonio has a big population and a large footprint. The next Mayor of the city will have to deal with impending issues like urban redevelopment, gentrification, water conservation, growing industry, and a myriad of transportation issues.

Where the city goes can be directed by a Mayor's vision. We invited four of the leading candidate in next month's city election to discover their visions for San Antonio. We invite your calls (210-614-8980) and emails (thesource [at] tpr.org).

 1965 was a year of racial division. These lines were especially clear in public schools, where attempted integration was met with bullying and resistance from white students.

Fiesta Commission

The  history of Fiesta continues this week. The 124-year-old San Antonio tradition has changed but only little when compared to the dramatic changes to the surrounding city.

We talk with Lewis Fisher about Fiesta, a changing San Antonio and more.

Four women continue their push for exoneration in the case that sent them to prison for more than a decade for a crime they say never took place.

The San Antonio Four, as the media took to calling them, is made up of Kristie Mayhugh, Anna Vasquez, Cassandra Rivera, and Elizabeth Ramirez.

They go before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Wednesday to make their case again that they committed no crime.
