Al Diaz Virtual Panel Discussion

May 30 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, May 30 at 3 PM
Watch on Howlarts.org
Moderated by Luis Guzman
With Jose “Pepe” Flores, Lee Quinones, and Sandra Santana

Alphabet City and the adjacent Lower East Side has historically been a working-class neighborhood for immigrants from across the world. “Loisaida”, a nickname coined by a local Nuyorican poet Bimbo Rivas, became an extension of Puerto Rico in NYC. Political activism lived alongside art and the neighborhood has been a breeding ground for artists, musicians, poets, writers, and cultural pride in Puerto Rican and Latino culture.

Join Al in conversation about growing up Latinx on the Lower East Side and the challenges of pursuing a life in art with music conservator, dancer, and well known Lower East Side personality, Jose “Pepe” Flores; actor Luis Guzman; graffiti artist Lee Quinones; and poet Sandra Santana.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
