The Young Lords: PALANTE

Voices and Photographs of the Young Lords, 1969-1971

Palante, the first book by and about the Young Lords, captures the spirit and actions of the 1970’s New York-based organization. Palante features political essays by members, oral histories of their lives leading into the party, and photos of their vibrant and militant members, actions, and events.

IN 1969, a group of young, primarily Puerto Rican activists founded the Young Lords Party in New York City taking inspiration from the Black Panther Party. Organizing directly in Latino/a communities, the Young Lords took up slum housing conditions, garbage clean ups, „serve the people programs,“ and health care.
