Long Beach Public Library and MusicUNTOLD present a screening of the 1948 classic Mexican film Angelitos Negros on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 6:00 p.m. in the Main Library auditorium. Starring popular Mexican actor Pedro Infante, the drama is about a woman who gives birth to a baby that is not white and then learns the woman who was her nanny is actually her mother. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.
Following the film, MusicUNTOLD will present a live conversation and performance by soprano Hope Foye. Hope was a classically trained soprano, activist and protégé of Paul Robeson. Her passport was taken during the McCarthy era because she participated in a competition in East Germany. Hope spent the next years earning a successful career outside of the United States, including Mexico where she often performed the song Angelitos Negros. Hope is now 90 years young.
The Main Library is located at 101 Pacific Avenue in Long Beach. For more information on this or any Long Beach Public Library service or event, please call (562) 570-7500 or visit www.lbpl.org.
