The Council on Hispanic Affairs would like to invite all of you to attend a film called Millie and the Lords followed by a panel discussion on September 28th between 12pm and 3pm – located in GSUB – MPR A.

The panel will be comprised of Jennica Carmona, writer, director and star of the film, and Miguel E. (Don Mike) Rodriguez, chairman, Hispanic American Chamber of Commerce Foundation of Essex County.

Millie and the Lords is a film that will inspire many to re-examine the events that took place in El Barrio in 1969. The film tells a story of Milagros Baez, a young, working class under-confident Puerto Rican woman whose life is changed for the better when she begins to be mentored by a former Young Lord named Mateo.  Through his mentorship she begins to learn about the young Lords Party and her rich Puerto Rican history that helps to uplift herself and fight for social justice.

The Council on Hispanic Affairs hopes hopes for an engaging and informative discussion about the history of the Young Lords and the fight for social justice.
