Puerto Rico’s Super Woman Studies in Columbia, Not Colombia

La Borinqueña will be the guest of honor at this year’s Puerto Rican Day Parade.

I might have been sleeping but totally missed this week’s presentation of La Borinqueña, the first afroboricua Super Woman.

According to its creator, Puerto Rican illustrator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, La Borinqueña’s real name is Marisol Ríos de la Luz; she is a young Puerto Rican studying a masters in Columbia (Not Colombia) and living in Brooklyn with her parents. (She also has a body well suited for Hispanic television, if you asked me.)

La Borinqueña will also be this year’s guest of honor at this year’s Puerto Rican Day Parade to take place June 12 in New York City.
