Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of the Latino community.
To start the celebration this year Cazateatro Bilingual Theatre Group, in collaboration with The Groove at GPAC, will host the Premios Alma Latina (Latin Soul Awards). The Premios Alma Latina recognizes members of the Latino community, and their allies, for their achievements, leadership, and support in making the Mid-South a better place to live.
The awards will be presented on September 10, 2022, at The Grove at GPAC 5 pm to 8 pm located at 1769 Exeter Road.
Cazateatro invites the Memphis community to join in celebrating these amazing Memphians and Mid-Southerners and the Latin community. Latin music, food, and vendors will all be a part of the celebrations! Special performers from Chicago, the Bomberxs D’Cora of La Escuelita Bombera de Corazón, will showcase Bomba, one of Puerto Rico’s oldest surviving music and dance forms established by the island’s African descendants.
