ABOUT “MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE”

Making The Impossible Possible tells the story of the student-led struggle to win Puerto Rican Studies at Brooklyn College, CUNY, in the late 1960’s. Puerto Rican, African American and other progressive students and faculty forged a powerful alliance and together changed the face of higher education with the founding of one of the first Puerto Rican Studies departments in the nation.
