Caridad De La Luz’s one-woman theatrical show envisions a future built on Indigenous – Afro – Taíno - Jíbaro culture and imagination. Dedicated to the Puerto Rican diaspora, From Poor to Rico is a love letter to lives lost and to those still surviving. With original poetry, music, and visuals, Caridad invites us ALL to imagine a better future for Puerto Rico.

Caridad De La Luz won an Emmy Award as Script Writer of “Legacy of Puerto Rican Poetry”, a cultural segment that aired on ABC TV during the National Puerto Rican Day Parade 2021. As of January 2022, she became the Executive Director of the Nuyorican Poets’ Café, where she began her artistic career in 1996. She has been one of America’s leading spoken word poets for over 20 years and has received numerous awards and citations. Among honors bestowed upon her, she has been named one of the “Top 20 Puerto Rican Women Everyone Should Know” and a “Bronx Living Legend”.

From Poor to Rico's development was funded by the Jerome Hill Artist Fellowship, as Caridad De La Luz was selected to be part of its inaugural artist cohort, 2019-21. Supported by Pepatián: Bronx Arts ColLABorative
