Summary "Antonia Pantoja's epic story of public service, social justice advocacy, and intellectual innovation will contribute mightly to the public record and establish itself as a staple of curricula, library collections, and community discourse across the United States for years to come."
"In this memoir, Pantoja recounts in her own words the major benchmarks of her journey, which reflect the larger experiences of New York-area Puerto Ricans, the so-called "Nuyoricans," who helped to put the national Latino community on the map for many Americans during the 1960s and 1970s. In her analysis of this journey, Pantoja helps to put into perspective the critical, if still not fully realized, dreams achieved by Puerto Ricans on the mainland during the past five decades."--Jacket.
