A Tale of Two Cities: Chicago and New York

Congressman Luis Gutiérrez:
“This children’s picture book shares the history of the flags, celebrates community and introduces young readers to the Afro Puerto Rican music bomba. Planting Flags on Division Street helps us to understand how powerful monuments can be and how they shaped the identity of a historic Chicago community.”

Hello Friends,
Earlier this year my colleague Alejandro Molina, who designed Planting Flags, left the Windy City of Chicago to visit me in the Big Apple. He joined me alongside Juango and Los Pleneros de la 21 in a parranda at East Harlem’s La Casa Azul Bookstore. From that event blossomed the design and layout for this book and the activities bookletPlanting Flags EVERYWHERE.
Alejandro was only in town for for a brief stay but together, we were able to share the story behind Planting Flags on Division Street with people from all over the U.S.A. He flew back home with a copy of the book and a promise to share this story with the people of Humboldt Park, Chicago. Please take a look at the story behind our book.
New York and Chicago, together we can change the script on which books are allowed to happen.Pa’lante!
