Inhaltsangabe: Aqum Me Quedo describes a group of citizens struggling against tremendous odds to build thriving and vibrant communities throughout Connecticut. Through careful research and especially oral histories, which are integral to this bilingual publication, the author explores the early history of Puerto Ricans migrating from the island to Connecticut (as early as 1844) up through the 20th century great migrations to work in the tobacco fields of the Connecticut Valley. Glasser looks closely at what the experience of migration meant to newcomers from Puerto Rico to Connecticut and how these individuals struggled to make a better life in an often hostile land. The oral histories which supplement each subject covered personalize these issues and make them come alive for the general reader.
Über den Autor: Ruth Glasser is an independent public historian. She received her Ph.D. in American Studies in 1991 from Yale University. Since then she has worked on publications, music festivals, museum exhibits, documentaries, and other projects related to the Puerto Rican and Latino communities of New York, Connecticut, and other parts of New England.
