From the Publisher

Gilberto Gerena Valentín is one of the key figures in
the development of New York’s Puerto Rican community
between the 1940s and the 1970s. Gerena
Valentín actively worked on the foundation and development of the main post-war Puerto Rican organizations, including the Congreso de los Pueblos,
the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, the National
Association of Puerto Rican Civil Rights, the Fiesta
Folklórica Puertorriqueña, and the Puerto Rican
Community Development Program. During this period,
he was also the Director of the City Commission
on Human Rights and New York City Councilman.
Gerena Valentín was a pioneer in creating coalitions
with the top civil African-American civil rights organizations, playing a key role in mobilizing Puerto
Ricans in the famous 1963 and 1968 marches in
Washington, D.C., and in the 1964 New York City
School Boycott, the largest in the history of the
United States.
In his memoirs, Gilberto Gerena Valentín takes us to
the core of the ongoing union, political, social and
cultural struggles set forth by Puerto Ricans between
the years following the Great Migration and the 1970s.
