Celebrating the legacy of Frank Espada

Frank Espada
Frank Espada, the renowned Puerto Rican activist and photojournalist, will be honored on Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. in the San Francisco Jazz Center’s Miner Auditorium. The event, which will display many of Espada’s timeless images, will be accompanied by a wide array of artists, including the John Santos Sextet. Espada, who moved to San Francisco with his family in 1985, died in 2014. Espada helped found numerous organizations including the National Welfare Rights Organization, the National Latino Media Coalition, and the National Hispanic Manpower Association, but is perhaps best known for his imagery from The Puerto Rican Diaspora Documentary Project. The exhibit will also feature photos from Espada’s collection which are being made to the public for the first time. Tickets to the event are available at $25, $35 and $50.
