  • Centro at El Mini Fest

    This past Saturday, October 18th The Loisaida Center celebrated a family day (#elminifest) and Centro was there. Local Loisaida families, together with families from across town including El Barrio and Brooklyn, spent a marvelous day of music, dance, readings and play at their renovated facilities.

    In this event the legacy of Puerto Rican librarian and story teller Pura Belpré was highlighted for the enjoyment of those present. Attendees were treated to a screening of Centro’s documentary Pura Belpré: Storyteller complemented by a showcase of a traveling exhibit consisting of a series of posters that tell the story of her life and achievements. Also, children enjoyed a reading of Belpre’s book “Pérez and Martina” by Montessori teacher Coral Nogueras Ortiz.
