The Puerto Rican Journey was a "survey" about Puerto Rican migrants during 1947. It was one of the first efforts by the Puerto Rican government to stop rascism going on in the U.S. towards Puerto Ricans. It was called the "Puerto Rican Problem". The article was written by  C.Wright Mills, he later became one of the best writers in the 1960's. This was just a small step to improve how they were treated. It deffended the Puerto Ricans being in the U.S.

  1. Julie, this looks like a really interesting source - what did you find in the Times - was it a news article about this survey, an editorial, or something else?
