Join us on Monday, October 18, 2021 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ¡Palante, Siempre Palante! Day. Proclaimed on October 18th, 1996 by then Manhattan Borough President, Ruth Messinger, ¡Palante, Siempre Palante! Day honors the rich history of Puerto Rican activists in New York, specifically, the Young Lords. These stories are cataloged in the 1996 documentary of the same name, ¡Palante, Siempre Palante! in an effort to prevent this history from being lost or forgotten. Join the film’s director, Iris Morales, in conversation with Puerto Rican filmmaker Frances Negron Muntaner to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this historic occasion and discuss the importance of documenting history on film. Presented by Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) and Third World Newsreel.
