Angela PadronBy Angela Padron

On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous and unforgettable “I Have a Dream Speech” in Washington, D.C. That day he spoke about his desire for equality for all Americans, regardless of the color of their skin.  For decades, people of color were discriminated against, even having segregated bathrooms, schools, buses, lunch counters and other places from white Americans. Through protests, marches, speeches and non-violent actions, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. helped others recognize the injustice. Years after his assination, laws were finally changed to provide equal rights to everyone, no matter what race they came from.

Rubén Dario

By Evelyn Silva

Comenzar el año nuevo con el espíritu renovado y con la poesía en el corazón es un indicio de que este será un año lleno de literatura. ¿Qué tal si te cuento que un mes de enero pero de años diferentes nacieron dos genios de la literatura y dos maestros inigualables del modernismo latinoamericano? ¿Sabes a quiénes me refiero? Pues sí, me refiero a Rubén Darío y a José Martí. El primero, nicaragüense y el segundo, cubano. Hombres de nacionalidades diferentes pero con corazones latinoamericanos; hombres que enaltecieron y elevaron el nombre de nuestra literatura hasta lo más alto forjando el movimiento modernista latinoamericano.
