PHOTOVOICE GALLERY - Hosted by Community Service Society of NY

Over the course of 6 weeks in April and May, twenty-six residents from NYHCA developments in East and Central Harlem met in groups to discuss how they stay healthy; they were then asked to showcase their experience through photographs. Residents identified the photographs that best express what healthy looks like in their neighborhoods, as well as the barriers to health they experienced.

The PhotoVoice images serve to raise awareness in support of further advocacy to eliminate barriers to health in East and Central Harlem, and to highlight the community in all its richness and vibrancy.

Hecho en Puelto Rico

Starring: Angel Vázquez

A funny and touching tale of discovery and pride, a student prepares to graduate and leave Puerto Rico to escape the economic crisis.  As he arranges to leave, the young man unearths his cultural roots through the lives of such noted men and women in the island’s history as José de Diego, Julia de Burgos, Eugenio María de Hostos, and Roberto Clemente, among others.  With great comic flair, Vázquez reveals both the promise and the pain of migration to the mainland from the island.  For ticket and more information, click here.
