Centro is proud to host the third stop of this exhibition illustrating the lives and contributions of three sisters: Evelina Lopez Antonetty, an iconic activist and champion for social causes; Lillian Lopez, one of the first Puerto Rican librarians in the New York Public Library system and its first Puerto Rican Administrator; and Elba Cabrera, an ambassador and advocate for the arts.
Centro’s exhibit will highlight the life and achievements of Hunter College alumna, Lillian López, a pioneer librarian in the New York Public Library system. As an administrator, she helped set policies and changed the way libraries related to minority communities.
We will also celebrate the life of Lorraine Montenegro, daughter of Dr. Evelina Antonetty; and an admired figure in the Bronx. She continued Evelina's legacy and expanded many programs at United Bronx Parents benefiting the community. Lorraine passed away in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria
