A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman.

EL BARRIO FLAVA!
I had a wonderful time uptown in Spanish Harlem Saturday given by the Caribbean Cultural Center for the launch of their new app. There was food and great entertainment that represented the soul and vibrancy of Old Skool Spanish Harlem. I plan on capturing the excitement of both communities in East Harlem; Spanish and Italian. Check out this video from the evening! Enjoy!
