WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Soledad Speaks is spoken word theater at its best. This evolutionary and revolutionary stageplay is created, curated, and directed by award-winning writer, Linda Nieves-Powell, and features the poetry of four dynamic female poets; Meriam Rodriguez, Maria Rodriguez, Peggy Robles-Alvarado, and JF Seary. The journey begins on the Island of Puerto Rico and ends in modern day New York City. By revisiting the colonization of an Island and the effects on its women, and their journey from slavery, to rebellion, to freedom, Soledad Speaks' pays homage to those who came before us in the hopes of understanding how their legacy has defined who we are today.
