They came to Los Nuevayores with a dream. Their journey would change
them forever. Based in true history, Mami Boricua is a powerful tribute to the
Puerto Rican women, mothers and grandmothers, who contributed to union efforts to improve wages and working conditions for garment industry workers in New York City in the late 1950s.
