Born in East Harlem in 1947, Felipe Luciano was a member of the Original Last Poets and a co-founder of the Young Lords.

As reporter for NBC, he became the first Puerto Rican news anchor of a major media network station in the United States where he also won an Emmy for his reporting on Riker’s Island.

On WRVR-FM, he hosted Latin Roots which mixed political advocacy with a salsa soundtrack giving regular New York air play to artists like Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri and Celia Cruz.
