“I was raised inside of a Puerto Rican family, but born in Brooklyn, and inside of an African American community, many of which members had uprooted from the rural South. I was protected and nurtured by both. I owe all of the people who touched me something for the touch. Not all of us can discover and realize our capacity to do.”
– Louis Reyes Rivera (1945-2012), Afro-Puerto Rican poet, educator and scholar.
