For today’s episode Jessica had the honor to speak with Oscar López Rivera. Oscar is a Puerto Rican nationalist who is the longest held Puerto Rican political prisoner having served over 35 years. In 2016, President Obama commuted his sentence.
In this talk you’ll hear about his hope for PR in the wake of hurricane Maria, how people in the Puerto Rican diaspora can help, if he harbors any anger for spending 35 plus years in prison and how he hopes history will remember him.
