Loíza is a town that was founded by runaway (Cimarrones) Africans in the 1600s. It is now home to Puerto Rico’s largest African descendant community. Amidst the devastation of hurricane Maria and ongoing systemic racism in Puerto Rico, residents share the truth about what is happening – and what is not happening – on the ground.

#PRontheMap is a grassroots media delegation devoted to reporting on, reimagining, and reviving Puerto Rico.
