Ponce & San Juan: Injustices brought onto the national spotlight due to a “natural disaster

John Wesley Crespo

I conducted an oral Interview with my grandpa, Bartolo Ortiz, who lived in Ponce for nearly 30 years and was living on the island when Hurricane Maria made landfall in Ponce, Puerto Rico in 2017. You will hear his opinions regarding the status of corruption, infrastructure and citizenship (state vs. commonwealth) in Puerto Rico during [pre/during/post] Hurricane Maria respectively.
