Documentary Screening & Discussion | The Borinqueneers
Saturday, April 15th | 2:00 p.m.
This documentary shares the fascinating never-before-told story of the Puerto Rican 65th Infantry Regiment, the only all-Latino unit in U.S. Army History.
Narrated by Hector Elizondo, the documentary explores the fascinating stories of courage, triumph and struggle of the men of the 65th through rare archival materials and compelling interviews with veterans, commanding officers, and historians.
The 65th Infantry Regiment was created in 1899 by the U.S. Congress as a segregated unit composed primarily of Puerto Ricans with mostly continental officers. It went on to serve meritoriously in three wars: World War I, World War II and the Korean War. The unit’s name derives from the Taino word “Borinkén,” meaning “Land of the Valiant Lord,” as was the name that this Indigenous community gave to the island before its colonization.
