THE PUERTO RICAN (AMERICAN) CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

Havana, Cuba

   The Afro-Descendant Project - Puerto Rico


Photographs, emancipation certificates and historical records serve as inspiration for the creation of monuments alongside industries and structures that were built from the wealth made from slavery.

These monuments will celebrate and honor African ancestors whose sacrifices and contributions made possible the creation of private and public industries in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Western Europe and the US
