Más allá del mar

Más allá del mar

Journalism as Puerto Rican Cultural and Political Transnational Practice

(p.69) 3 Más allá del mar
Becoming Julia de Burgos

Vanessa Pérez Rosario

University of Illinois Press

This chapter looks at the significance of New York's Spanish-language press—specifically the weekly newspaper, Pueblos Hispanos: Semanario Progresista (Hispanic Peoples: Progressive Weekly, 1943–44)—exploring how Puerto Ricans employed journalism as a form of cultural and political transnational practice. Pueblos Hispanos promoted pan-Hispanism, the integration of Latin American countries, and socialist causes throughout the world, with a focus on Latin American countries such as Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, and Mexico. The paper offered detailed coverage of the politics of Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rican colonia while encouraging solidarity in the struggle for freedom and justice in countries across Latin America. In sharing news from Latin America and specifically Puerto Rico, the paper kept Spanish-speaking residents of New York City informed, establishing transnational connections as they tried to influence local politics.

Keywords:   Spanish-language press, journalism, Pueblos Hispanos, pan-Hispanism, Puerto Rican colonia
