Palabra Pura: A Toda Madre, Men Pay Tribute to Their Mothers

March 18, 2015 @ 7:30 pm


Sharing California roots, a love of poetry, and a feminist devotion to their mothers, Tijuana native Brian Martin and L.A. native Arturo “Tootie” Alvarez blend English and Spanish to pay homage to their mothers. From a mother’s reminder to always use condoms to her struggle to raise her family on her own to the demoralizing beauty standards forced upon women, Martin and Alvarez show the resilence and resistance of mothers everywhere. March’s Palabra Pura is curated by the Chicago Latino Writers Initiative.

All “mother” tongues are welcome! Arrive early to sign up for the open mic.

Palabra Pura is pay-what-you-can ($5 suggested donation).
