Description

Presented FREE by the Sawyer Seminar, Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging, a project of the University of Iowa Latina/o Studies Program, the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

In the midst of the African American civil rights struggle, protests to end the Vietnam War and the women's movement for equality, Puerto Rican and Latino communities fought for economic and social justice. From Chicago streets to the barrios of New York City and other urban centers, the Young Lords emerged to demand decent living conditions and raised a militant voice for the empowerment of the Puerto Rican people in the United States. Palante, Siempre Palante! surveys Puerto Rican history, the Young Lords' activities and philosophy, the torturous end of the organization and its inspiring legacy.
