We are happy to announce our the return of our annual Roque Dalton tribute celebration! This year we’re doing something different and we’re incorporating the event with the Calle 24 Cultural District’s bimonthly Paseo Artistico event.
Roque Dalton was a Salvadoran poet, journalist, activist and guerrilla fighter in El Salvador’s civil war. His poems spoke to the everyday conditions of Salvadorans and they continue to receive international recognition.
Our evening program will be led by an amazing lineup of renowned Central American poets! Maya Chinchilla and Norman Zelaya will be our emcees and Leticia Hernandez will facilitate a community platica.
Celebrate Roque with us as we recite his most famous poems, listen to community poets inspired by his work and participate in Salvadoran folk dancing led by Grupo Maiz.
