Juan Bobo History Lesson:

 Pedro Albizu Campos

Pedro Albizu Campos was the first Puerto Rican to graduate from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. He became president of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party, and the most controversial political figure in Puerto Rican history.

He spent 23 years in prison. He was accused of attempting to assassinate President Harry Truman. He led a revolution in 1950 that swept through eight towns in Puerto Rico, including an armed assault on the Governor’s mansion.

Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and Nelson Mandela studied his life, and learned from his experience. Yet strangely, many people are unaware of this key historical figure.
