boriquachicks #Chicago via @bombaconbuya "Buya and The House Blues Chicago proudly present the video premiere of Candela. Candela is a video collaboration developed by artist-educator team Brenda Torres-Figueroa and Arif Smith in conjunction with the performance ensemble Buya. Co-directed by Samuel Reyes and Samuel Vega, the video combines site specific work from Chicago and Ponce, Puerto Rico along with archival footage that urgently directs our attention to various contemporary injustices. Candela aims to connect coordinates found between Puerto Rican and African diasporas while mapping entrenched racial and political violence and protest. For example, Ponce is well known for the Massacre of 1937, where over two hundred people were wounded and nineteen unarmed Nationalists were executed by state police. Candela explores how the Ponce Massacre of 1937 and the current climate of police brutality and state sanctioned violence across the United States might share political and racial dimensions." Join us for an unforgettable experience with Buya's soulful rendering of Afro-Puerto Rican bomba and special guest DJ FLX (Fe'lito). #chicity #bombaconbuya #bomba #houseofblues #puertorican #boricua #ponce #diaspora #latindad #afrcandiaspora #blacklatinas #boriqua #racialtension #music #latism #protest #videopremiere #buya #pr #musica #latinos #candela #poncemassacre 60min

msafrofeminista Chica Da Silva, née en 1732 d'un père portugais et d'une mère esclave, était une femme brésilienne qui fut célèbre en devenant riche et puissante malgré qu'elle soit née esclave. Elle fut la maîtresse de Joao Fernandes de Oliveira, un riche propriétaire d'une mine de diamants et gouverneur des mines. Cette union provoqua l'indignation dans la société brésilienne de l'époque.
Elle mourut en 1796 et fut enterrée à l'Eglise de Saõ Francisco de Assis, privilège réserve aux seuls Blancs.

boricua_spirit We as a people must unite so change can happen for our people here and abroad..United we must stand or else we all fall... Individually, we are one drop, together, we are an ocean!!!! As we speak..we are seen as wounded animals..are we mi gente?
Go follow @nuestra_patriapr if you dare..he speaks truth with no filter.. @nuestra_patriapr - Great victory of the young lords! The city ignored the community so the community fought back. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ But for weeks, sanitation service in East Harlem continued to be poor. Frustrated, the Young Lords took the bags of garbage and built five-foot-tall barricades across Third Avenue, halting traffic. Then the group’s members set the garbage on fire, which brought out police and firefighters (though not sanitation workers). As a result, the garbage service improved, though it was never what it was in wealthier neighborhoods. #nationalistparty #nationalist #jayuyauprising #quevivapuertoricolibre #puertoricanindependence #puertoricanactivist #boricua #nuyorican #boriken #indigenous #puertoricanpride #boricuadiaspora #PuertoRicanDiaspora #diaspora #pedroalbizucampos #lares #oscarlopezrivera #elgritodelares #independence #waragainstallPuertoRicans #puertoricanflag #puertorico #puertorican #IntentonadeYauco #yauco #money #currency #GarbageOffensive #eastharlem #harlem

My Mom (@lenorerslim) is in an upcoming group show called #PAGTITIPON in #Vancouver in just a few weeks. The #Filipino #Music and #Art Foundation in British Columbia, in co-operation with the #PhilippineConsulateGeneral in Vancouver and #GlobalPinoy #Diaspora #Canada, will present a special art exhibition of a selected group of outstanding Filipino #artists based in Canada and the UnitedStates. PAGTITIPON will be held on August 10 -14 at #Roundhouse in downtown Vancouver.
PAGTITIPON, literally translated from Tagalog, is “A Gathering” and appropriately describes the coming together of a group of ten very talented Filipino-Canadian and Filipino-American artists who for the first time together will showcase original body of works in varied art medium.
Holding PAGTITIPON in Vancouver will provide a rare opportunity for art lovers in Vancouver and BC to view significant art works that reflect a wealth of life experiences, not only in North America but also in the Philippines. Each artist's own individuality as well as the group's unique insight and perspective as Filipino-Canadians and Filipino-Americans, strongly suggests an extraordinary and exciting show worthy of heightened anticipation. For certain, it will be an exhibition abundant in talents, exceptional in originality and creativity.
The artists are:
Danvic Briones
Tessie Dichupa
Imelda Cajipe Endaya
Carlos Esguerra
Edgardo Lantin
Lenore R.S. Lim,
Esmie Gayo McLaren
Bert Monterona
Jose Trinidad
Art Zamora
The Filipino Music and Art Foundation in BC is committed in promoting appreciation and understanding of fine arts in the community at large, and in enhancing the public exposure of the Filipino artists it supports. RSVP to lenorerslim@gmail.com or esmie@meld-art.com if you are interested in attending the reception for the artists on Aug. 11 at 6:30 - 8:30 pm.
