Lourdes Torres Papers, 1968-2000
Protest against the film Fort Apache, The Bronx (1981) for its racist depictions of Black and Latino people in the South Bronx. The photograph depicts a young woman holding a sign that reads in Spanish "Time and Life - Nuestra Dignidad So Ne Vende!!" ("Time and Life - Our Dignity is Not for Sale!") The woman is likely a member of Committee Against Fort Apache, as the acronym appears on the sign.
