Synopsis: the tradition of Julia De Burgos, Clemente Soto Velez, Pedro Pietri, Victor Hernandez Cruz,Tato Laviera, and the many others who have pushed a Puerto Rican literary canon, Bonafide Rojas holds his place within this esteemed group. Through poems like Creed of a Graffiti Writer, Invisible Ones, and 25 Years In, we see the maturity of a writer spitting in the wind, his Nommo creating poems that resurrect ancestors and endorse empowerment. While many in the Nuyorican canon would be content with poems that speak to their persona! experiences, Mr. Rojas chooses to personalize issues of oppression and cultural preservation. His dialectic focuses on several themes-the immigrant experience in America, tales of wasted talent in an Andy Warhol Era, and visions of war in faraway lands speak with clarity and power. Bonafide Rojas uses language and contemporary music to challenge the norms and status quo. Through his use of language, the rhythms of Hip-Hop/Rock & Roll speak with a Bronx Boogie attitude that reflects his Nuyorican roots. A child of the Puerto Rican Diaspora transplanted to the streets of Nueva Yol, Mr. Rojas uses his words as blades, cutting through the absurdity and deceit that often plague our judgment
