Over 700 attend
Over 700 people crowded into Roberto Clemente Community Academy’s auditorium last Friday, February 1 to see a chapter of Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznik’s “Untold History of the United States”. Principal Marcey Sorenson welcomed those present and after the film, a short panel discussion ensued with Stone, Prof. Kuznik and Prof José E. López, Executive Director of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.
The panel fielded questions from the audience via index cards filled out after the film. The panelists took turns addressing the questions and all of them talked about the possibilities of the future of struggle in the US. The activity like the press conference and Meet and Greet the next day were part of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center 40th Anniversary series.
To end, both Prof Kuznik and Oliver Stone were gifted mementoes of the occasion, a poster of the Puerto Rican flag and to Oliver Stone, a Free Oscar López t-shirt, a fitting gift from a community of struggle.
