“As a Puerto Rican, I am excited and grateful to Clyde Hughes for embarking on such a needed initiative as Front Runner New Jersey/La Prensa. I was delighted to read the stories of individuals of Latino descent that are unselfishly and bravely contributing to changing the Latino condition in New Jersey by voicing and expressing their personalities, uniting to build a Latino community and to changing their subordinate situation as a distinct ethnic community of color.”
