la suprema definición: O Yanquis ó Puertorriqueños? -Don Pedro Albizu Campos

Today Rebelarte visual arts charla
with artist Yasmin Hernandez at Cemi Underground, El Barrio

If you are in NYC for the long weekend, please join me at the second presentation of my Rebelarte series which take place the last Saturday of each month at Cemi Underground in East Harlem. These are not exhibits, but slide presentations and discussions on different topics inspired by themes of resistance, struggle and liberation.

November is usually known as "Puerto Rican Heritage Month". Though I believe everyday should be about Puerto Rican heritage and all our ancestry, this presentation will look at the things that make us uniquely who we are and why, in spite of our nebulous political state, we are clearly our own nation. We will also highlight those who over the centuries have battled to defend Puerto Ricanness and why we have not and won't accept a "yanqui" identity.
