CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

Question asked: If you could modify something about your experience with the Young Lords, what would it be? In this clip Garden Acosta discusses that although there isn't really anything he would modify from his participation with the Young Lords Party, upon quick reflection he would be more respectful of certain people and institutions that were oppressive to the community. He says some were not ideologically determined to be oppressive, and that he would be more understanding to where people were at. He also mentions that the Young Lords were often referred to as the polite revolutionaries by the press.
