“WE ARE THE SPIRIT OF LOLITA LEBRON,” says artist Lillian Mulero
DATELINE, SAN JUAN, PR
March 1, 2016 is the 62nd anniversary of the 1954 Puerto Rican Nationalist Party attack on the US House of Representatives by Lolita Lebron, Rafael Cancel Miranda, Irving Flores and Andrés Figueroa Cordero. To commemorate that historic event, I will walk the streets of Old San Juan dressed as Lolita Lebron, to demonstrate that those times hold a deep resonance with our contemporary story – OUR HISTORY – the story of Puerto Rico and its relationship to the USA.
I invite everyone to walk with me, in the spirit of LOLITA, on March 1st staring at 2PM at PLAZA DE ARMAS on the corner of calle San Francisco and calle Cruz and ending in front of the CAPITOL building overlooking the SEA.
I issue a special invitation to the artistic-cultural community – musicians, educators, painters, film-makers, actors, writers and journalists, and all the dancers of our country who have LOVE and PRIDE for the national identity of Puerto Rico.
DO NOT FORGET YOUR HISTORY – OR YOUR CULTURE!
Lillian Mulero, artist
