Join us for the final free lecture in the Spring Social Activism Lecture Series! Social Activism: Community Activism

Thursday, May 2, 2013 5:00 – 6:30 pm

In the decades following World War II, New York’s demographic composition reflected the mass postwar settlement of African American and Puerto Rican migrants. Dr. Johanna Fernandez, CUNY, will explore how the Young Lords and other groups of activists, such as the Black Panthers, called for change in minority communities during the 1960s.

RSVP here.

Dr. Johanna Fernandez teaches 20th Century U.S. History, the history of social movements, the political economy of American cities, and African-American history at Baruch College and is currently working on her forthcoming book on the Young Lords Party, the Puerto Rican counterpart to the Black Panther Party.
