    Associate Professor Johanna Fernandez joined Kate Adler and Jorge Juan Rodríguez V for the SLA NY event The Young Lords in the Archives in November 2020.

    It was great to hear the conversation that surrounded the work in her book, Young Lords Party: A Radical History.  The engaging conversation of the panelist made it a memorable event.  Sadly, technology worked against us for a recording that night.

    Sending our congratulations to Associate Professor Johanna Fernandez.
    All the best, Clara
