“We Puerto Ricans have even been subjected to treatment in the Broadway drama and a fabulously musical show. But invariably this treatment harps on what is superficial and sentimental, transient and ephemeral, or bizarre and grotesque in Puerto Rican life – and always out of context with the real history, culture and traditions of my people.” – Jesus Colón (1901-1974), Afro-Puerto Rican writer and activist.
