Join Mellon Foundation President Dr. Elizabeth Alexander, as well as, Alana Casanova-Burgess (Host and Producer of the WNYC and Futuro Media podcast, La Brega: Stories of the Puerto Rican Experience), Dr. Yarimar Bonilla (Director of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College in New York City), and Daniel Lind-Ramos (Sculptor and Painter) for a discussion about Puerto Rico Now—its powerful multiplicity, its many lessons, and much more.
Puerto Rico holds a rich history; it is simultaneously a vibrant island chain in the Caribbean, a multivocal diaspora on the mainland, and a US territory. Puerto Rico, in its diversity, encompasses a variety of stories, experiences, and challenges. For years, the Mellon Foundation has been honored to support artists and scholars, poets and writers, community organizations and institutions of higher learning throughout Puerto Rico and its diaspora.
