Welcome to the
Welcome to a new website dedicated to providing students, researchers, community activists, and anyone else who's interested with information about the New York Young Lords. As a researcher, I have been frustrated by the lack of information readily available about the Lords and wanted to offer a general contribution so that other folks interested in the Lords would be able to approach the subject with a little more ease.
This website was started years ago and has been supplanted by the newly available book, The Young Lords: A Reader
(NYU Press, 2010). The book has been called "the documentary sourcebook on the Young Lords" (Juan Flores) and a "tour de force" (Angelo Falcón). That said, I'm keeping the resources already online up -- so please keep scrolling down to see more.
