Cafecito con… Victor Hernandez Cruz

Cafecito con… Victor Hernandez Cruz

Location: The Silberman School of Social Work


April 20 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm EDT

Poetry has always been a proud outlet for Nuyoricans, and before the famed cafe, there were poets like Victor Hernandez Cruz. Named one of the greatest American poets by Life Magazine in 1981, his work concerns “the history of immigration in a world-wide sense; the idea of civilization coming into other civilizations.” Join Victor and fellow poet Urayoan Noel, at the Silberman School of Social Work for a reading from his new book, Guayacan, named after an important tree for our Taino ancestors across las Americas.

This event is part of the CENTRO 50th Anniversary Celebration! Join us all of 2023 in celebrating 50 years of CENTRO’s work to strengthen, diversify, and reimagine the field of Puerto Rican Studies!
