    1973 The Puerto Rican Cultural Center is opened. In its more than thirty years of existence, the PRCC is housed in several locations throughout the Humboldt Park neighborhood. With a strong commitment to the center’s motto, “Live and help to live,” the organization works to provide numerous services to the Puerto Rican and Latino communities. Named after Juan Antonio Corretjer, a poet and nationalist leader of Puerto Rico, the space offers Puerto Ricans/Latinos the opportunity to come together to address issues that confront their communities.
