"For generations Latinas have influenced our communities by leading our families, defying adversity and committing to their faith. Today, throughout the city these women reflect that history through art," Councilwoman Martinez said.
The Los Angeles City Council hosted a reception and presentation for "Latinas in the Arts" in light of Latino Heritage Month on Tuesday 10/7. Each Councilmember was asked to honor one woman in the community, who is making an impact in the arts. Councilman LaBonge honored MCLA’s Executive Director Isabel Rojas-Williams to recognize her cultural contributions to Los Angeles. A reception was held at 8.30AM at the City Hall's Rotunda. The presentation took place in Council Chambers at 10:00 AM.
Special guest & honoree: Author & international recording artist Sheila E.
