Cafecito: Miriam Colon, from “Scarface” to “Bless Me Ultima” still paving the way for Latino actors

On this episode of Cafecito, we are honored to host one of our greats, Miriam Colon, whose expansive career has included more than a half century of film, television and theatre. A pioneer who paved the way for Latina actresses of today, Colon joined us to discuss her new part as a curandera in her latest film, “Bless Me Ultima,” and her role as artistic director of the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre.

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.
