Happy Birthday Oscar Romero!

“Let us not tire of preaching love; it is the force that will overcome the world.” – Archbishop Oscar Romero

This week we celebrate the birthday of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was born August 15, 1917. A tireless champion of social justice for his people and outspoken critic of poverty and violent social repression. In the Core Ensemble show “Los Valientes” Romero  is portrayed by actor David Perez Ribada. Here is a clip of the Archbishop recalling his place of birth:

And watch as Romero expounds upon his concept of peace:

Core Ensemble diversity programs would not exist without the help of our donors! Your support will enable us to create a Virtual Library of our Music Theatre Pieces that Celebrate Diversity and Social Justice. “Los Valientes” will be just one of our virtual show offerings, to be made available to schools, community groups, colleges, and universities. THANK YOU!
