About the Cover Mario Mena and Squeak Starzula are artists from the southwest side of Chicago. Growing up on a side of the city where the arts and social programs are underfunded, the artists are proud to be a voice for their community through art and to bring social awareness to the racial injustices plaguing our country and city.
