“Antonia Pantoja: ¡Presente!” is the compelling story of a visionary Puerto Rican leader who inspired multiple generations of young people across the country and Puerto Rico. Unbowed by the obstacles she encountered as a black, Puerto Rican woman, she advocated for bilingual education, ethnic studies programs, nontraditional pedagogy and community
empowerment. Through Aspira, the premiere Puerto Rican/Latino youth organization located throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, her legacy of giving back to community lives on.
