🌹Dearest community, I am speaking on the Art as Protest: Culture and Activism in Social Movements Panel this Saturday at 2:30pm during the Young Lords 50th Anniversary. This three-day event will celebrate the founding of the Young Lords Organization in the city of Chicago in the summer of 1968. The Young Lords became the entryway into the US Civil Rights Movement for a generation of Puerto Ricans on the US mainland. The organization would become integral to a national and transnational movement, and a gateway to political consciousness around Puerto Rican self-determination. ✊🏾I am honored to be included in such company and to be able to discuss my humble work as a 2nd generation Afro-Indigenous Boricua artist/educator/activist in Chicago⚡️tickets are sold out but hope algunos of y’all snatched some!
