World War I changed Puerto Rico immensely. It has long been said that Puerto Ricans became United States citizens due to the need for soldiers in 1917. However, the truth lies somewhere else. Puerto Ricans have a long history of intricate relations with the metropole and a major step was taken due to events both on and off the island during the Great War. Join Dr. Harry Franqui-Rivera, Associate Professor of History at Bloomfield College, as we explore how Puerto Ricans were affected by the War, and how service and becoming American citizens changed Puerto Rico. This lecture is in SPANISH. Esta conferencia es en ESPAÑOL.
