Video Highlights

This is a snippet from our Hispanic Heritage Performance- Los Planeros de la 21. We had a great time! Los Planeros de la 21 is dedicated to fostering awareness, appreciation and understanding of the richness and vitality of Puerto Rican artistic tradition of African descent and creole.
They also embodied the celebration of the African Diaspora. Thank you for the wonderful performance.
