Mamacita and the Negrito

Emilio Rodriguez

Monday, May 30 at 4 p.m.

Mamacita and the Negrito is a fast paced spoken word romance told through poetry and vignettes dealing with a San Francisco couple who fall in love and have a baby in the mid 90’s and their present day child dealing with being unwanted and searching for a love of his own. Desire and destiny collide in this often comedic, often heartbreaking journey of self-discovery and the importance of living “como si mañana fuera ahora (like if tomorrow were right now)”.
