2nd Saturday: On the Brink: The U.S. Impact on Puerto Rico

Join us for our first 2nd Saturday event of the fall! Beloved Free Minds History Professor Samuel Echevarria-Cruz will paint the territory of Puerto Rico’s history against the backdrop of U.S. economic and political trends. He will outline the strong links between the current state of affairs in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the modern history of the U.S.

We will also investigate the treatment of Puerto Rico as it has sought to change its territorial status and seek statehood. Together, we will interrogate U.S. laws and policies and the nation’s responses to natural disasters which have impacted the economic crises and created critical social problems that have brought the island territory to the brink of economic collapse.

The event will be hosting on Zoom. Join us on Saturday here.
