Library and Archives Lunch Hour: Women in Performing Arts


Virtual Event Virtual Event

March 7 @ 12:00 pm 12:45 pm EST


Edith Diaz, Miriam Colon, and Tina Ramirez, amongst others, are all Puerto Rican actresses and performers for whom the concept of working twice as hard for half as much is not foreign. Despite being critically acclaimed and leaving a lasting impact in the world of performing arts within the U.S, they all faced an uphill battle throughout their careers. Join CENTRO as we dive into their papers and gain an inside look on these powerful performing artists and how they fought for themselves and each others behalf in a patriarchal field.

This event is part of the CENTRO 50th Anniversary Celebration! Join us all of 2023 in celebrating 50 years of CENTRO’s work to strengthen, diversify, and reimagine the field of Puerto Rican Studies!

Support our 50th Anniversary here!
