dc.description.abstractThis thesis is informed by the subject of race and identity within the works of Puerto Rican authors who live in the United States. Thus, it establishes an argument of exploring the Afro-Boricua identity in the works “cu/bop” by Louis Reyes Rivera and “Negritude” by Jaime “Shaggy” Flores. This is done by establishing and connecting the writers and schools of literature that came before Rivera and Flores and how these authors and movements influenced the creation of “cu/bop” and “Negritude”. Lastly, this thesis presents how Rivera and Flores become cultural agents who celebrate the Afro-Boricua while educating readers on the subject.en_US
dc.description.abstractEsta tesis pretende informar sobre los temas de raza e identidad mencionados en los textos de escritores puertorriqueños radicados en el exterior. La misma, establece un argumento explorador sobre la identidad Afro-Boricua en los poemas “cu/bop” de Louis Reyes Rivera y “Negritude” por Jaime “Shaggy” Flores. La conexión de otros escritores con los diversos movimientos literarios lleva al análisis influyente de éstos en la creación de los poemas vinculados al estudio y cómo sus autores se convierten en célebres agentes culturales de la identidad Afro-Boricua que a la vez educan a los lectores sobre el tema previamente mencionado.en_US
