Johanna Fernández, assistant professor of history at Baruch College of the City University of New York, will discuss her new book, The Young Lords: A Radical History. Fernández has written the definitive account of the unexpected group of New York radical poor and working-class Puerto Rican youth who emerged in the 1960s. The Young Lords fashioned themselves after the Black Panther Party and confronted race and class inequality and questioned American foreign policy.
