​ A Dream Deferred: The Forgotten Promise of Latino Empowerment-
For Puerto Ricans in the white marble halls of Albany, our time had finally come. There I sat in New York State Assembly Speaker Mel Miller’s office at 270 Broadway on a chilly afternoon on March 1987. I was among a group of Puerto Rican legislators discussing the Somos Uno (We Are One) conference. This was to be a statewide gathering of Puerto Ricans and Latinos that would finally put our community on the map. Assembly members, Angelo Del Toro , Héctor Díaz, José E. Serrano, along with me, representing Bronx Assemblyman José Rivera, were discussing with Speaker Miller and his communications director, Eric Schneiderman, details  of what would emerge as the premier annual expression of Latino influence in New York State: the Somos el Futuro conference. http://goo.gl/5lCFP9
