Location: El Museo del Barrio – 1230 5th Ave, New York, NY 10029

In March, the Apollo Theater, in partnership with the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute and in collaboration with Omer Pardillo, will present a special concert to commemorate the life and legacy of Celia Cruz, Tribute to the Guarachera de Cuba: The Queen Celia Cruz on Saturday, March 22, 2014. In advance of this special concert the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute in collaboration with El Museo del Barrio, the Apollo Theater and National Black Programming Consortium presents Celia the Queen – Film Screening and Panel Discussion.

Celia the Queen, a film produced by Joe Cardona, is a loving look at the amazing life and legacy of a woman whose voice symbolized the soul of a nation and captured the hearts of fans worldwide. Erupting onto the Cuban music scene as the lead singer for La Sonora Matancera, Celia Cruz broke down barriers of racism and sexism. With the powerful weapon of her voice and the warm tolerance of her heart, Celia soon became all things to all people. The film shows the diversity of the people whose lives she touched, from stars like Quincy Jones, Andy Garcia, and Wyclef Jean to ordinary people all over the world who loved not only her music but her incredible spirit.

A panel discussion moderated by Aurora Flores (Musician) will follow the film screening. Panelists include Ruth Sanchez (Former hair stylist of Celia Cruz), Malin Falu (Radio personality) and Felipe Luciano (WBAI, Poet).

This event is FREE and open to the public
