  • Sonia Sotomayor paints a revealing self-portrait/Sonia Sotomayor pinta un revelador autorretrato
      "It is impossible not to recognize that the vestiges of discrimination take a long time to erase," writes in Mi mundo adorado (My Beloved World, Vintage, $ 27.95) Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic justice to sit on the United States Supreme Court. In her memoirs, she reveals details of her childhood growing up in a poor neighborhood in the Bronx, as well as the difficulties she faced as a college student at Princeton in an environment rife with prejudice and racism.

  • “Hollywood and Hispanics”
    It was my pleasure to sit back and watch two of my favorite all time movies on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) last night. “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) followed by “Sahara” with Humphrey Bogart (1943) were the movies. In these spectacular wartime films I rediscovered why Hollywood can show us the way on race and ethnic relations. Specifically, I point to a minor scuffle among some in the Hispanic community over whether or not Hispanics were honored by Ben Afleck in his Academy Award winning “Best Picture “Argo.” Former California State Senator Gloria Romero brought up the subject in an Oran....

  • Feb. 2: ¡Armemos la ‘Tamaliza’!
    En México el dulce para el Día de los Reyes Magos es la Rosca de Reyes. Se esconde en su interior una figura de Jesús Niño. El que encuentre la figura se convertirá en padrino o madrina del Niño y deberá engalanar la figura el Día de la Candelaria (2 de Febrero) y llevarla junto a sus compadres (los dueños de la casa donde se partió la rosca) a la iglesia más cercana donde en una misa solemne recibirá la bendición. Después de la Misa se retorna a la casa del “niño”, donde se partió la rosca para celebrar una “tamaliza”, una comida con tamales y atole cuyos gastos corren por cuenta del pad....

  • Adrián Abonce: Artista "en movimiento"
    "Cualquiera puede hacer fotografías pero cualquiera no puede ser artista" dice el colombiano Adrián Abonce. Uno de los artistas emergentes de mayor proyección en el ámbito de Filadelfia. Su fascinación por la gente en movimiento le ha llevado a la creación de obras como "Timeless" integrada en la exposición Diálogo 365 - Carpe Diem exhibida recientemente en el Ayuntamiento de Filadelfia. "Es una foto a la antigua con cámara de los 60 en la que intenté plasmar una imagen que trascendiese el tiempo". Abonce, que pese a su juventud cuenta con un impresionante palmarés, es un artista en....

  • Posada Sabrosa 2012 en Bear, DE
    La emisora de radio Sabrosa 98.3 FM organizó una Posada en la parroquia St. Elizabeth Ann Seton de Bear, DE el domingo 23 de diciembre. Con un lleno total, miembros de la comunidad "pidieron posada", cantaron villancicos, rompieron piñatas, comieron y bebieron comida tradicional de Navidad, y se sacaron fotos con Santa. Por primera vez este año se lanzaron "Lamparas del Deseo" durante el evento. Como nota curiosa, los bomberos acudieron para ver qué eran esas luminarias que se estaban elevando en el cielo. Para finalizar la velada, el grupo Rivales de la Sierra puso a bailar a los p....

  • Celebraciones tradicionales
    Celebramos la Navidad. Unas fiestas ancestrales que se montaron sobre otras relacionadas con Mitra o con Saturno o con Osiris o con el solsticio de invierno. ¿Qué más da? Lo que importa es la celebración del cambio estacional, desde la noche más grande del año, acogiendo un nacimiento que simboliza la esperanza, el renacer, la nueva vida. Tiene que ver con nuestra propia infancia, esa dolencia de la que uno felizmente no se cura. Es un fenómeno cultural con miles de años de “historia”. En otras latitudes, de forma similar se “celebra” el nacimiento del Buda o de otros avatares de la ....
