Chilo’s They Came. Puerto Ricans and 1492 #boricuasonline

Puerto Rican Voices Episode 9 from Center for Puerto Rican Studies on Vimeo.

Sharing this especially because of the last segment, a poem reflecting on Puerto Ricans and 1492. How can I not share this as I’m pitching my novel to literary agents, The Saints of Columbus?

From CentroVoices:

“…Lastly, we end this week’s episode of Puerto Rican Voices with the spoken-word poet and hip-hop artist known as Chilo, as he walks through the streets of New York City. He performs two of his pieces while reflecting on how he came to appreciate his Puerto Rican heritage. Chilo’s work can be described as an homage to the experience of Puerto Ricans in the US as well as an attempt to reclaim the history of our ancestors. He also discusses El Grito de Poetas, the Latino poetry collective he founded in 2005.”
