Within a historical and cultural framework spanning three countries and over one hundred years, Antonio’s Will tells the story of the rise of a Puerto Rico tobacco planter and the fall of his son Antonio Pontón, the first Hispanic executed on the electric chair in the United States. In this story of sacrifice, love, tragedy and injustice, the author exposes trial errors and highlights the importance of cultural and racial tolerance, respect for constitutional protections and equal justice under the law. Antonio’s Will exposes the tragic events: the murder, the trial errors, the desolation at the Sing Sing prison, the pleas of an entire island to save him, and his unjust execution. This is Antonio’s story, but it is also a call for equal justice for all people.
