Nuyoricans: Puerto Ricans in New York celebrates the history, culture, and contributions of a unique and vibrant community. At once both American citizens and migrants from a Caribbean Island, Puerto Ricans in New York belong to two worlds. The word “Nuyorican”, itself, expresses this colorful combination of New York and Puerto Rican culture. Part of Thirteen’s ethnic American series, the film chronicles the history of Puerto Ricans in New York, taking us on a tour of several of their neighborhoods, from El Barrio uptown and Loisaida downtown to the South Bronx. It also treats us to a rich exploration of their art, music, and poetry as well as their achievements in education, politics, sports and business. From bilingual education to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, from “arroz con gandules” to Salsa in Central Park, this film series salutes the Nuyorican experience.
