In 1986 Raúl Martínez Rosario migrated to the United States, via Puerto Rico, on a boat (or yola) like the one pictured. He then traveled to Chicago, lived there undocumented, and eventually became a US citizen. Martínez Rosario published an extraordinary narrative account of his yola journey, which can be read at http://raulmartinezrosario.tripod.com.

 

His presentation at Connecticut College, which is open to the college community and the general public without charge, will be an informal talk in a question-and-answer format. It will be preceded by an illustrated  lecture, by Prof. Frank Graziano, that provides an overview of Dominican boat migration. The Graziano lecture is from 1:15 to 2:15; the talk by Martínez Rosario is from 2:30-3:30. Interested individuals may attend one or both. The entire event will be in Spanish.

Students are also invited to attend a discussion in English with Martínez Rosario,

which will be moderated by Prof. Leo Garofalo in Blaustein 201

 on Wednesday, September 24, from 10:25 to 11:40.
