As some of you may know, I’m Puerto Rican. So today (June 8) is a pretty big day for me and Puerto Ricans everywhere. In honor of that, I’ve decided to put together a (admittedly not very good) masterlist of various notable Puerto Ricans and information about them, as well as some forms of media created by, and/or featuring Puerto Ricans (bolded means the person/thing is a favorite of mine). Most of these links are to Wikipedia articles for the sake of my time and sanity, but I greatly encourage you to seek out more information about these wonderful people! So without further ado, here goes:

Artists

Actors/Actresses

Athletes

Books

Movies/TV Shows (that feature or are about Puerto Ricans)

Musicians (I took the liberty of linking to my favorite songs by some of the artists, just for fun)

Historical Taíno Figures

Writers

Some More Information

Also, why not take a trip down to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe or El Museo del Barrio to learn a little more about Puerto Rican history and culture (NYC specific)
