Interview with Juan J. González on April 8, 2016, Segment 13

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

González talks about the circumstances of his taking over as Parade Coordinator of Camden's San Juan Bautista Parade in 1989 and the benefits he derives from that position. A lifelong participant of the parade, González began to assist his mother, Ramona Martínez González, during her tenure as Parade Coordinator while he was attending Seton Hall University and Rutgers Law School at Camden. After graduation, he came on to help Alicia Santos as co-coordinator. In 1989, González took the position over. The work is a "labor of love" for him. His payback is the joy children experience during the parade and his knowing that they are also learning important cultural lessons.
