Event Description

Edgardo will talk about how growing up with a love of comic books gave light for his passion for social justice. He will address the humanitarian crisis affecting Puerto Rico via the current debt crisis and the recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria. Through his presentation, you’ll come to understand why he created La Borinqueña to help bring these issues to light and also create an icon for an underrepresented community that embodies cultural pride, power, and resilience like its people. After the talk there will be a chance to purchase a signed copy of your favorite La Borinquena comics.
