After the Hurricane: A Puerto Rico Syllabus Teach-In

14 March 2018. Profs. María Fernández aka Mariposa (Black Studies Program), Kaliris Salas-Ramírez (CUNY School of Medicine), and Vanessa K. Valdés (Dept. of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures) spoke on the current state of Puerto Rico after the hurricane. Issues included a historical background to this present moment (how did we get here?), disaster relief efforts, the privatization of schools, and what we can do moving forward. This conversation was inspired by the Puerto Rico Syllabus (puertoricosyllabus.com).
