As the spring 2021 virtual semester comes to a close, City Times debuted its first volume of CityScene magazine, which focuses on arts and culture on and around the San Diego City College campus.

It marks a new direction for the digital news organization, which previously published an issue of Legend magazine each semester.

The new direction for the magazine comes as City Times formally partners with TV news, radio/podcast, magazine and independent Film to create City Times Media. All CTM content can now be found on, representing the collaboration between the partners on a single platform.

The City Times team has reported virtually throughout the semester, providing the latest news for the San Diego City College community.

In this issue:

• A community of activists passes the torch to the next generation to protect Chicano Park
• San Diego City College hosts a storytelling showcase that gives students an opportunity to tap into the past and pave the way to the future
