The Borinqueneers

Friday, July 13, 6PM – 9:30PM

Newark Museum
49 Washington Street
Newark, NJ.

Reception and Q&A Session with the film’s producer Ms. Noemi Figueroa Soulet

This event is a fund-raiser for the New Jersey Hispanic Research and information Center (NJHRIC) at the Newark Public Library.

The Borinqueneers chronicles the story of the all-Puerto Rican 65th Infantry Regiment, the only Hispanic segregated unit in U.S. Army history. Using rare archival footage and intimate interviews, this film explores the exploits andpainful tribulations of these now-forgotten veterans. Risking their lives to further the cause of democracy, these soldiers from the U.S. colony of Puerto Rico, were drafted but were not afforded full citizenship rights. Many served and died valiantly. During the Korean War they would face their toughest challenge,.

ADMISSION IS FREE, BUT PLEASE NOTE THAT SEATING IS VERY LIMITED AND REQUIRES PRIOR RESERVATIONS.
