Prim i Prats I
An appointed governor of Puerto Rico at a point in time within these pivotal shifts was Joan Prim y Prats. As acting captain-general (governor) of the island, he created the most infamous Decree against the African race in 1848, only one year after he was delegated to office. Bando Contra La Raza Negra [Decree Against the African Race] was a repressive and punitive decree that made no distinction between free Africans, People of Color and slaves.
