This fascinating book from the University of Puerto Rico Press searches for the history of the man in the famous painting of maestro Cordero by Francisco Oller. Here is a black man who ran a school for white and black children from 1810-1868 - more than 100 years before racial segregation in US schools was abolished.
A story written for young people, but one that all will enjoy. A gift of history and inspiration.
