BoogieDown Poet, Actress, Hip Hop Star and Activist, Caridiad De La Luz 'La Bruja', set to Perform at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe Friday May 27th

While scanning the LGBT Chamber of Commerce web site, I came across a spoken word event at the Nyorican Poets Cafe. Besides the historic venue, this Friday also sports a performance by Bronx poet, actress, hip hop star and activist Caridad De La Luz (aka 'La Bruja'). One of her many contributions includes her provided much of the soundtrack for the film "Gun Hill Road". She also was kind enough to MC the red carpet gala concluding this years 1st ever Bronx Week Film Festival. She has a captivating spirit, the heart of an angel and is always a positive influence for our borough. I hope everyone goes to her performance on Friday. Please do see the post below and links provided for additional information about 'La Bruja" and the LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
