Cafecito: Poet and author Caridad De La Luz, “La Bruja”

On this episode of Cafecito, we were joined by the multi-talented poet, author and community activist, Caridad De La Luz, also known as “La Bruja”. The Bronx-born Boricua exploded on the spoken-word scene in 1996 and has since independently written and  produced her own music and theater. De La Luz teaches at-risk Latino youth about the power of self-expression through her work with community organizations,  Voices Unbroken and Latinas4Life.  For more information visit http://www.labrujamusic.com/ .

Each week we will have a lively, candid conversation with prominent Latinos who shape our community – artists, politicians, actors, achievers and thinkers. Set at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Café in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, we will have a relaxed conversation over a cafecito about their personal and professional lives as Latinos in America.
