Interview with Ruth Laviera Sanchez on January 20, 2016, Segment 12

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

When asked about her role in the community, Laviera Sanchez asserts that she did not have time to get much involved because she spent most of her time working. However, her youngest brother Tato became active in the community from an early age. She asserts that while living in the Lower East Side Tato began his relation with the Nuyorican movement and specifically with Miguel Algarín and Jorge Brandon. Laviera Sanchez emphasizes that at that time she did not want Tato in that world because she did not understand the transcendence of his work.
