April 4th Concert with Orquesta Mapeyé

On Friday, April 4th, NBHRN celebrated the Centennial of Juan Antonio Corretjer with a concert by Orquesta Mapeyé, who along with the Boricua Hip-Hop star, SieteNueve, came directly from Puerto Rico to Chicago. Along with former political prisoners Alicia Rodríguez and Luis Rosa, the spokesperson for the Committee on Human Rights in Puerto Rico, Eduardo Villanueva and the young Puerto Rican artist and Grand Jury resister from New York, Tania Frontera, also helped commemorate the 28th anniversary of the arrest of the Puerto Rican political prisoners. On that very day in 1980, 11 Puerto Rican men and women were arrested in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, convicted of seditious conspiracy and served almost 20 years until President Clinton, spurred by a world-wide campaign, offered them a pardon in 1999. Carlos Alberto and Oscar were not among those freed and the campaign to free them and the rest of the Puerto Rican political prisoners continues.
