Cuban singer, "the Queen
of Salsa," 1924 - 2003
Celia Cruz has long been one of my favorite personalities and I clip out
her pictures when ever I see them. You'll see why!
When she died in 2003, tributes came in from around the world. LA
JORNADA gave her a big send off.

When I was selecting the fotos for this page, I came across this
clipping from the mid-eighties. Celia Cruz was one of the first
voices to call upon the mass media "to educate and inform" the public
about AIDS. Good work, Celia.
