We Took the Streets: Fighting for Latino Rights with the Young Lords based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Sometimes overshadowed by their more well-know contemporaries the Black Panther Party, this book on the Young Lords gives a first-hand look at the political and social activism of that same Puerto Rican group. The movement gave rise to such noted figures as Felipe Luciano and Juan Gonzalez. The book is more a personal reflection by Miguel Melendez on what the group was fighting for and tried to accomplish than a formal historical analysis of the group. But it is a good book nonetheless for those interested in the history of Puerto Ricans in New York City.
