Rewind Episode: 24 -Breakfast with the President Part 2

Please join Angel and Dr. E as they hand over the mic to two-time cancer survivor, civil rights activist, community leader, and urban housing pioneer and advocate Ramon Rueda. We promise you will be mesmerized by Ramon’s testimony and historical journey from a small hill town in Puerto Rico, to the New York City barrio and the south Bronx.

Through Ramon’s lens we relive the Kennedy-Johnson civil rights agenda, the marches and speeches of Martin Luther king, his battles with the FBI as a conscientious objector, champion of enrollment of minorities into the SUNY college system, and finally his most impactful legacy of helping to rebuild the south Bronx from a ground zero war zone to respectable low-income housing for the oppressed, underserved and abandoned. His story is so unbelievable that it was recounted on national television and capped by a personal visit from President Carter and a visit to the White House. You can’t make this stuff up!
