About This Show

The Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture in association with the Latino Experimental Fantastic Theater (L.E.F.T.) presents Evelina’s Heart, a multi-media play inspired by the life of Puerto Rican activist Dr. Evelina Lopez Antonetty, the “Mother of the South Bronx.” Evelina became an inspirational leader during the height of the struggle for community control of public schools. She dedicated her life to the education and development of parents as critical participants in the formation of an effective educational system. Gloria Zelaya directs this one-act play written and starring Sandra Rodríguez.
