Young Lords Document Drop
In honor of this weekend’s “Young Lords Way” Street naming in East Harlem, NYC, a friend and supporter Tamara K. Nopper has linked us to a treasure trove of Young Lords bilingual newspapers from the 1970’s. While we don’t agree with everything said in the pages, the Young Lords clearly fought many of the same injustices we see today.
While Eric Garner’s death on 7/17/14 by an NYPD officer’s chokehold is disturbing, that high level of police brutality is all too common in communities like ours. Eric Garner was not the 1st innocent person of color to be killed at the hands of the police. If we don’t remember our history, and take action, he will certainly not be the last.
