Young Lords Way in El Barrio
By Ismael Nunez
A highlight this summer is the naming of a street in East Harlem in honor of the Young Lords. It finally happened on July 26, a great day and victory for the community. That day the YOUNG LORDS were remembered and honored for their contributions. Former members of the YOUNG LORDS from chapters from New York City, Chicago, and Connecticut, were present as 111th Street was named Young Lords Way.
Here are some scenes from that joyous day in El Barrio. I am honored to live in a neighborhood with a street called Young Lords Way.
