Celebrating someone’s heritage gives an opportunity for people to learn about where their ancestors came from and educate others. It is where they can really talk about and show the different customs, types of food and other unique traits specific to that heritage.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Soledad Speaks is being held to show the history and evolution of Latinas and has an all Latina cast, writers and directors.
Soledad Speaks is a spoken word performance combining multimedia, dance and poetry about the journey between the arrivals of Spanish ships in the Caribbean to modern day New York City. The way of life then and now is very different, yet, through colonizing establishments, and struggling to get to freedom through slavery, it is important to understand what Latinos went through and how they influence who Latinos are today.
This performance will be held at the Theatre IATI, 64 East 4th Street, NYC from October 8th through October 13th. Tickets are between $20 and $25 and can be purchased at www.soledadspeaks.com.
