“No matter how well we spoke and wrote the King’s English, or how faithfully we reproduced the canons of American literature and culture, our books remained foreign to the mainstream press and, with a few notable exceptions, outside the scope of national awards. Now, thanks to your magnanimity, we will become more visible, recognizable as part of this grand cultural venture that is the creation and publication of books. Muchísimas gracias.”

The oldest and largest publisher of Hispanic literature in the US—and the original publisher of Sandra Cisneros’ novel, The House on Mango Street—Arte Público Press on being awarded the Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award.

Juan González, currently a frequent co-host of Democracy Now!, was one of the founding members of the Young Lords in East Harlem. Pictured here in front of the group's headquarters on 111th Street ca. 1971, the Young Lords were a radical group led by Puerto Rican youth, African Americans, and Latinx New Yorkers. They grew from their East Harlem base to establish branches in the Bronx, the Lower East Side, and Brooklyn, and they staged direct action campaigns against inequality and poverty in neighborhoods across the city. They also called for national independence for Puerto Rico, and the posters papering the headquarters' windows reflect the influence of earlier generations of Puerto Rican nationalists and the Cuban Revolution of 1959.

Learn more about the Young Lords' influence on New York City in a brand new installation in our #ActivistNY exhibition: http://bit.ly/activistny
