On Thursday, November 14th, 2013, Las Gallas opened for three amazing women- Ana Castillo, Sonia Sanchez, and Angela Davis.

What happens when words become weapons? Sonia Sanchez, Ana Castillo, and Angela Davis explored that question, drawing upon their own work as activists and authors, in this provocative literary event hosted by the First Person Arts Festival.

Over 200 people attended while we performed excerpts from Ghetto Bolero. Ghetto Bolero re-imagines the traditional Latin American boleros from a woman's point of view. The performance was accompanied by violinist Luigi Mazzochi and guitarist Patricio Acevedo.
