Interview with Juan J. González on April 8, 2016, Segment 8

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

González addresses why the San Juan Bautista Parade remained dormant for ten years and discusses the circumstances of its rebirth. He points out two main motivators for the parade's return. One, community leaders' sense that new generations were not being taught about their Puerto Rican heritage. The parade was a way to keep continuity with the past and to maintain and pass on culture. Two, community leaders saw the parade as an opportunity to bring the entire city of Camden together in a positive celebration of itself to bolster civic pride.
