Description

MANY CULTURES * ONE WORLD
“Boricua is what Puer­to Ricans call one anoth­er as a term of endear­ment, respect, and cul­tur­al affir­ma­tion; it is a time­less dec­la­ra­tion that tran­scends gen­der and col­or. Boricua is a pow­er­ful word that tells the ori­gin and his­to­ry of the Puer­to Rican peo­ple.”
–From the Intro­duc­tion
From the sun-drenched beach­es of a beau­ti­ful, flam­boy­an-cov­ered island to the cool, hard pave­ment of the fierce South Bronx, the remark­able jour­ney of the Puer­to Rican peo­ple is a rich sto­ry full of dar­ing defi­ance, coura­geous strength, fierce pas­sions, and dan­ger­ous politics–and it is a sto­ry that con­tin­ues to be told today. Long ignored by Anglo lit­er­a­ture stud­ies, here are more than fifty selec­tions of poet­ry, fic­tion, plays, essays, mono­logues, screen­plays, and speech­es from some of the most vibrant and orig­i­nal voic­es in Puer­to Rican lit­er­a­ture.
