Title
I'd Still be Puerto Rican, Even if Born on the Moon: Documenting Puerto Rican Migration & Community through the Arts
Summary
This presentation tells the story of the Puerto Rican diaspora to the mainland U.S. during the 20th century and into the 21st through the lens of expressive culture. This history has been well recorded, but by drawing on the work of folk and traditional artists, as well as the work of contemporary artists, the speaker explores the traditions practiced or developed in New York by Puerto Ricans and Nuyoricans.
