Radical Imagination, Radical Humanity: Puerto Rican Political Activism in New York

Radical Imagination, Radical Humanity provides firsthand accounts of militant Puerto Rican activists in 1970s New York City. Rose Muzio analyzes how structural and historical factors—including colonialism, economic marginalization, racial discrimination, and the Black and Brown Power movements of the 1960s—influenced young Puerto Ricans to reject mainstream ideas about political incorporation and join others in struggles against perceived injustices. This analysis provides the first in-depth account of the origins, evolution, achievements, and failures of El Comité-Movimiento de Izquierda Nacional Puertorriqueño, one of the most enduring organizations of the Puerto Rican Left.

    Congratulations on your book Rose! I have no other way to reach you or Vitin. I hope you are able to read this and can email me taninel@bellsouth.net. Would love copy of book dedicated to Nelson Gomez by you and Vitin, he would be so proud and a legacy for our daughter. I’m sorry to miss the event, moved toColorado.
    Hasta la Victoria Siempre.
