¡PALANTE, SIEMPRE PALANTE! The Young Lords, 1996
In the midst of the African American liberation struggle, protests to end the Vietnam War and the women’s movement for equality, Puerto Rican and Latino/a communities fought for economic, racial and social justice. From the streets of Chicago 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 Puerto Ricans and other Latino/as in the United States and for the end to the colonial status of zation independence of Puerto Rico.
