The Ghetto Brothers were a gang (or club) and music group founded in New York City's South Bronx in the late 1960s. Like the Young Lords, they were involved in Puerto Rican nationalism, including, in the case of the Ghetto Brothers, an association with the then-new Puerto Rican Socialist Party. Ghetto Brothers founder Benjamin Melendez, who left the organization in 1976, was also known as a guitarist. He led a band, also known as the Ghetto Brothers. They released one album Ghetto Brothers - Power-Fuerza in 1971, which had only informal, local distribution and has since been re-released on CD. This commemorative 4" x 6" post card is printed on premium card stock with a satin matte finish for a vintage look and feel and features an original Ghetto Brothers club jacket from the 1970s. This exclusive post card is part of our Ghetto Brothers collection which honors the legacy of Benjamin “Yellow Benjy” Melendez and the essence of his legendary organization.
