  1. An indispensable resource 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2014

    Pioneros II, 1948- 1998, is an indispensable resource that should be in your personal library and without doubt in every public library. Pioneros concisely documents significant moments, both public and private, of the Puerto Rican Community. What is priceless about this volume and its companion, Pioneros I, is that it publicizes events that the mass media frequently failed to document. Thankfully, Centro's archive contains many gems and Pioneros II provides a glimpse of the richness of the archive, our community and the role it plays in New York, politically and culturally.
