"The Mahatma taught us that true power is within us and that freedom must rest first in the soul and will be invincible." - Dr. Pedro Abizu Campos
Dr. Pedro Abizu Campos is one of the great Puerto Rican heroes of the twentieth century, but what is sad is that most people don't even know who he is. I didn't even know about him until I started to look into my Puerto Rican heritage and discovered this courageous leader.
He was born into poverty and was able to get an education at Harvard University. While his political views were considered controversial, he always wanted what was best for the island of Puerto Rico.
You can read more about him and other great poets and artists in my book, Song of the Boricua.
