Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738572454, Paperback)

Following World War II, Puerto Ricans moved to New York in record numbers and joined a community of compatriots who had emigrated decades before or were born in diaspora. In a series of vivid images, Pioneros II: Puerto Ricans in New York City 1948–1998 brings to life their stories and struggles, culture and values, entrepreneurship, and civic, political, and educational gains. The Puerto Rican community’s long history and achievements opened pathways for the city’s newer Latino immigrant communities.

La primera gran oleada migratoria aérea del siglo XX a Nueva York fue la de cientos de miles de puertorriqueños que llegaron después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Éstos se unían a una nutrida comunidad de compatriotas que habían emigrado a principios del siglo pasado y a los nacidos en la diáspora. Pioneros II recrea visualmente sus historias y luchas durante estos años de crecimiento; su trabajo, cultura y valores; esfuerzos empresariales y organizativos; la valía de su ciudadanía, y los reclamos por sus derechos civiles, educativos y políticos. Con sus muchos años de historia y sus logros, la comunidad puertorriqueña allana el camino para las comunidades latinas recién llegadas.
