Between The Lines with Barry Kibrick

Esmeraldo Santiago (Author) Conquistadora (#1120)

Esmeralda Santiago was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico before journeying to New York City. Her book, Conquistadora, is also about a journey but this time about the trials and tribulations of a restless young Spanish woman who leaves her native home of Spain to come to Puerto Rico in the Eighteen hundreds. Although a novel, this is an accurate, thrilling history of a Spanish-American territory on the verge of a historical moment reflected in all of America at the time. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
