The Young Lords were a radical group of Puerto Rican activists inspired by the Black Panthers who organized for social justice in their communities during the late 1960s - early 1970s.

This growing body of work extends from the exhibitions ¡Presente! The Young Lords in New York at El Museo del Barrio (2015) and Anchor (2015) at Hunter East Harlem Gallery - an exhbition inspired by the archive of Hiram Maristany, original member and official photographer of the Young Lords in New York.
