    One- Hundred Years of the Jones Act and Puerto Rican U.S. Citizenship

    ‪In anticipation of the centennial (1917-2017) of the enactment of the Jones Act, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO) will sponsor a symposium examining the history and legacy of the collective naturalization of Puerto Ricans as United States citizens.
