I would like to take this opportunity to thank Daniel M. López, Author of “California and Hawaii’s First Puerto Ricans, 1850-1925: The 1st and 2nd Generation Immigrants/Migrants”, for his recent participation via telephone this week on our weekly radio program “Misión Boricua Informa”, which airs on Tuesdays from 3-4pm on 1030am Orlando. I commend Daniel for his years of research and commitment to promote and preserve the history of Puerto Ricans in California and Hawaii. I encourage everyone to purchase this book. It is very informative. Some of the highlights include the founding of the City of Redwood, CA by a Puerto Rican, the struggles and suffering of Puerto Ricans during the mass migration to Hawaii during the early 1900’s, and the incredible pictures illustrated in the book. I was especially touched by the Puerto Rican woman with her young child being forced to enter a boat against her will. She knew the horrific conditions awaiting her. For more information on how to order this amazing book, please contact Daniel at 619-857-0721or Dlopez777@aol.com. Gracias.
