About this event

SFPoC and Brockway Memorial Library Present:

Black Hispanic Narratives Matter: BLACK pedro pan by Ricardo E. Gonzales Zayas

We invite the South Florida community to share in the amplification of diverse stories. Together we will unpack notions of identity politics and engage the real-life, historically relevant experiences and coming of age toils of Ricardo Gonzalez Zayas, who, in his book, BLACK pedro pan, recounts the complexities of race he witnessed as a Black young man thrust from his place of origin in Cuba into Civil Rights era Miami. Operation Pedro Pan was a program that began in 1962 to resettle over 14K unaccompanied children ages 6 to 18 whose parents wanted to escape Cuba’s revolutionary regime.
