(De)Colonial Subjects: Puerto Rico’s Political Status

La Respuesta‘s podcast series “(De)Colonial Subjects” curates an intimate conversation among Boricuas on the issues important to nuestra gente.

On July 25, 2013 a group of six Puerto Ricans assembled in a Logan Square, Chicago apartment to discuss many topics, the first of which was Puerto Rico’s political relationship to the U.S. from the perspective of the Diaspora.

Facilitated by Xavier “Xavi” Luis Burgos, with Libby Juliá-Vázquez, Hector Luis Alamo, Jr, Marisol Rodríguez, Jessica W. Gutiérrez Arocho, and Patricia “Patty” Johnson, directing and recording.
