Zoom Isabel Rosado Morales is a militant of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party who turned 105 years old on November 5. She became active in the Puerto Rican independence movement following the 1937 Ponce Massacre. She was arrested, fired from her job as a school social worker, and jailed for 15 months after the 1950 Jayuya uprising, although she was not a participant. Following the 1954 Nationalist armed action in the U.S. Capitol, police raided the party’s San Juan headquarters. Rosado was arrested and thrown in prison for another 11 years. Unable to get work because of her imprisonment, Rosado today makes her living sewing and crocheting while remaining active in the Puerto Rican anti-colonial struggle.
