Young Lords Co-Founder Turned “Best Street Reporter on TV” Pablo Yoruba Guzmán Dies

HeadlineNov 27, 2023

Pablo Yoruba Guzmán, the visionary former minister of information of the Young Lords Party and longtime print and television reporter, has died of a heart attack. In 1969, Guzmán co-founded the New York chapter of the predominantly Puerto Rican radical group the Young Lords, which fought against police brutality, racism, U.S. imperialism and militarism. The Young Lords also provided healthcare, child care and breakfast to impoverished people — most of them Black and Latino. Pablo Guzmán went on to write for publications including The Village Voice and Rolling Stone and spent nearly two decades at the New York station WCBS. His longtime friend, Democracy Now! co-host Juan González called Guzmán “the best street reporter on TV.”
