The Black Panthers and Young Lords and the Civil Rights Movement

Steven Sapp and Mildred Ruiz, founders of the 15-year old poetry theater ensemble Universes, whose works invite old and new generations of theater crafters to create the new stories of today. Join them as they lead a conversation with Miguel Mickey Melendez, former Young Lord and an activist for Latino and Puerto Rican rights, and Billy X. Jennings, Panther historian and primary organizer of the Its About Time BPP/Alumni Committee Reunions.


Love the conversation. I haven't seen Mickey since I was 13 During the taking of the People Church on Lexington Ave. and 110 Street. The Young Lords were the heroes of the Latino Community back in those days.
