¡Palante, Siempre Palante!


A Look Back At The Young Lords

Welcome to ¡Palante, Siempre Palante!, an internet resource aimed at providing information on the Young Lords. This organization was originally formed to help Puerto Ricans in New York City, Chicago, and other areas all over the United States. This site includes several articles, with illustrations, pertaining to important events in the history of the Young Lords. We would like to acknowledge El Museo del Barrio in New York City, Iris Morales's documentary, ¡Palante Siempre Palante!, and the book Palante: Young Lords Party, for providing a great deal of assistance, information, and photographic history.  Although the book does not seem to be on sale from any sole distribution source, it is available from different sellers on several internet book stores (Amazon.com, half.com, etc.).  It can be found by searching by the book's ISBN number, 007000157X.

About the site:

This website was originally created in 1997, stemming from two students' eleventh grade high school project at Saint John's School, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Formerly located at http://netdial.caribe.net/~dfreedma/Ylord.html , it has since been moved here.
