“Somehow I learned that I belonged with my people and that I had a responsibility to contribute to them. I will participate in changing the situations of injustice and inequality that I encounter because they deny people their rights and destroy their potential.”
– Dr. Antonia Pantoja, (Puerto Rican), 1922-2002, educator, feminist, civil rights leader and founder of ASPIRA, the Puerto Rican Forum, and Boricua College.
