  • New Centro Journal Focuses On Historic
    Debate over U.S. Citizenship for
    Puerto Ricans

    The debate over the extension of U.S. citizenship to Puerto Rico has “proven to be one of the most vexing constitutional issues for United States colonial rule,” writes Pedro Cabán in his essay “The Puerto Rican Colonial Matrix: The Etiology of Citizenship—An Introduction,” which is prominently featured in the new edition of the Journal.

    The essay is part of a special section titled “Puerto Rico, the United States and the Making of a Bounded Citizenship.” The articles in this section, Cabán says, analyze the “intersecting dimensions of citizenship, colonialism and empire.”

  • “Boricua Imprint” Poster Exhibit
    Celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage

    Every year Comité Noviembre (CN) celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage Month throughout November with a host of cultural, artistic and educational activities that bring awareness of the contributions of Puerto Ricans in the United States. As a gift, attendees get the special CN poster for that year, autographed by an artist and inspired by a specific theme that speaks to the heart of the Puerto Rican people.

    Many of these posters are currently on display at the “Boricua Imprint” graphics exhibition at Taller Boricua at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center, 1680 Lexington Ave. in East Harlem. The poster exhibit, which began in 2011 to commemorate CN’s 25th anniversary, has grown in popularity.
