Mapping Resistance: The Young Lords in El Barrio

A Blade of Grass Fellow Miguel Luciano uses photographs of The Young Lords, a group of 1960’s Puerto Rican activists from “El Barrio” East Harlem, to demonstrate the legacy of their work in the community and instill a pride of place for those living there now. Tying the Civil Rights-era past to the post-Hurricane Maria present, Luciano uses historic sites to create a connection between the island and the diaspora.
