Day 21 - Post an Image that Represents (Afr@)Latinidad and explain why
This is the first image i remember seeing in my family’s home of a Black Puerto Rican. Pedro Albizu Campos was a Puerto Rican revolutionary, scholar, lawyer, activist whose life work centered liberating our homeland of Puerto Rico. His position argued that the constitution of Spain had already granted Puerto Rico (and all other territories) autonomy prior to them “giving” the territories to the US to squash the war. He was all about liberation
He died (was murdered) in 1965 because of radiation experiments conducted by the US government on Puerto Rican prisoners.
