In Memoriam: Alice Cardona
(1930-2011)

Alice Cardona

Alice Cardona, a leader in the New York Puerto Rican and Latino community for advocacy for women’s rights, minority rights, and bilingual education, died November 1, 2011 at her Queens home. She was 81.

The author of Puerto Rican Women Achievers in New York City, Cardona was the first Puerto Rican to receive the Susan B. Anthony Prize, awarded to her in 1983 by the National Organization for Women. Through the years, she was awarded numerous community awards for her tireless work with women and children.

Cardona’s legacy lives on at Centro. She donated her papers to the Center for Puerto Rican Studies Library and Archives. It is one of Centro’s more pointedly feminist collections.

The memorial for Alice Cardona will be held:

Saturday, November 19, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Thomas M. Quinn and Sons Funeral Home
35-20 Broadway (36 St./Broadway)

Pura Belpré: Storyteller
This documentary honors the life and legacy of Pura Belpré (circa 1899-1982), a multicultural educator and storyteller who wrote and reinterpreted Puerto Rican folk tales. As the first Puerto Rican and Latina librarian in the New York Public Library system, she was an ambassador of the library's work with the Puerto Rican community. She was the author of more than ten children's books and an innovator in the use of puppetry, art and crafts as educational tools to teach kids how to read, write, and express themselves.
