Palante, Siempre Palante!

In the midst of the African American civil rights struggle, protests to end the Vietnam War and the women's movement for equality, Puerto Rican and Latino communities fought for economic and social justice. From Chicago streets to the barrios of New York City and other urban centers, the Young Lords emerged to demand decent living conditions and raised a militant voice for the empowerment of the Puerto Rican people in the United States. Palante, Siempre Palante documents the history with on-camera interviews, archival footage, photographs and music. The documentary surveys Puerto Rican history, the Young Lords' activities and philosophy, the torturous end of the organization and its inspiring legacy.

Reviews
"Iris Morales' film, ¡Pa'lante, Siempre Pa'lante! tells the moving story of the formation of the Young Lords, and shows how a group of committed, militant youth tackled the long neglected problems of their barrio community."
- Virginia Sanchez-Korrol, Historian, Huffington Post
