Nuyorican Poet’s Café Handout

Nuyorican is a term that defines a Puerto Rican from New York. It is associated with an artistic and literary movement that was started in 1973 with the creation of the Nuyorican Poets Café. Here people would showcase their art and perform poetry talking about the experience of leaving the island for the big city. Write or find a poem you like and draw yourself on the stage like you were performing it!
