"A New Day"

Bianca Rivera

This sketch was created in the midst of the scandals and collective protests that took place on the island and in the Diaspora during the ousting of Ricky Rossello in the summer of 2019 (and then illustrated January 2021). I was so inspired and so proud to see the spectrum of Boris that took to the streets: young, old, queer, black and brown and enraged. It gave me hope for a future where this current generation could be the catalyst for the change needed in Puerto Rico; hope for the day where this flag can be raised in alignment for what it symbolizes: independence.
