Puerto Rico & Cuba: Two Wings

Puerto Rican Heritage Month

Celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage Month with the words of 19th century Puerto Rican and Cuban revolutionaries in NYC. The poems and letters will be performed (as well as their secret Bronx connection explored) by Carmen Bardeguez-Brown, Yarisa Colón Torres, and Ricardo Muñiz, with declamador Sery Colón as emcee. The reading will be followed by a performance by Ani Cordero (a founding members of Pistolera), who will perform music from those islands’ trova movement.

Refreshments will  be provided by the Diego de la Vega Coffee Co-Op which offers organic coffee sourced locally in Chiapas from Zapatista autonomous farms.

In partnership with SEA’s BORIMIX Festival.
