Únete a nosotros con el Dr. Víctor Vázquez-Hernández presenta su segundo libro centrado en la historia temprana de los puertorriqueños en Filadelfia. El Dr. Vázquez enseñó historia en la Universidad de Temple y es también co-editor de la antología “La diáspora puertorriqueña: Perspectivas históricas.”

Before the Wave: Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia, 1910-1945 is a social history of the genesis of the Puerto Rican community in Philadelphia with a particular emphasis on the interwar years (1919-1941). It connects the city’s origins to the mass migration of the post-WW II years when Puerto Ricans consolidated their presence in Philadelphia (1945-1985).
