El Pueblo se Levanta (Newsreel #63)
The People Are Rising

EDUCATIONAL STREAMING: twn.tugg.com/titles/el-pueblo-se-levanta

In the late '60s, conditions for Puerto Ricans in the US reached the boiling point. Faced with racial discrimination, deficient community services, and poor education and job opportunities, Puerto Rican communities began to address these injustices by using direct action. This film focuses on the community of East Harlem, capturing the compassion and militancy of the Young Lords as they implemented their own health, educational, and public assistance programs and fought back against social injustice. An excellent portrayal of inner city organizing in the late 60s.

Third World Newsreel's historical Newsreel collection provides contemporary audiences with a vast archive of political documentary films chronicling the social movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Reviews
“...enables an idealized yet more nuanced depiction of the group to emerge, one that shows the Young Lords as the young dreamers and fallible human beings they ultimately were. The film’s conscious deconstruction of the idealizing impulse makes for a running theme in the film, rubbing explicitly against the representational grain embodied most prominently by the Oakland Black Panther Party.”
- Cynthia Young, Soul Power: Culture, Radicalism, and the Making of a US Third World Left
