Biographical Note

Mario Marcel Salas was born in San Antonio, Texas on July 30, 1949. On July 9, 1988 Salas married Edwina Lacy of Chicago; their two children are Elena Patrice and Angela Christine.

Salas attended Central Catholic High School and graduated from Phillis Wheatley High School, an African American segregated school, in 1968. Salas entered San Antonio College and graduated with Associate's degrees in Applied Science--Engineering Technology and Liberal Arts. In 1987 he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). Salas became an educator for the San Antonio Independent School District and received his Master of Education degree in 1999 from Our Lady of the Lake University. In June 2001, Salas enrolled in the Master of Political Science program at UTSA. He began teaching for the Alamo Community College District as an English and Government adjunct faculty member. Salas served as Vice President of the Judson Independent School District (JISD) Board of Trustees and currently works as lecturer for UTSA's Political Science Department. He regularly contributes articles to San Antonio publications.

For most of his adult life, Salas has been an advocate for San Antonio's African-American community. He was a key member of the San Antonio chapter of the Student National Coordinating Committee (SNCC) formerly known as the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. The local SNCC chapter was part of the Black Panther Party which meant San Antonio SNCC members were also members of the Panthers. The organization followed the 10 point programs of the BPP. This included free breakfast, free legal aid, surveillance of the police patrols, and a Black Student Union organizing committee.

Salas was a founding member of Organizations United for Eastside Development (OUED), Black Coalition on Mass Media (BCMM), and Frontline 2000. He championed the establishment of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday as a Texas state holiday in 1991, and participated in marches and other events commemorating Dr. King's legacy. In addition to local activism, Salas was involved with political issues relating to social justice and human rights struggles world-wide. In particular, Salas supported the Anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa and opposed the recruitment of Americans as mercenaries in the revolutionary war in Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia).
