Miriam Colón's #LegacyLeaders Video
"Giving this to the children...
helping them discover the richness of their own culture
the richness of what our contribution is to society...
when we are gone--that’s all that stays."
Miriam Colón, Puerto Rican Travelling Theater
Born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, Ms. Colón debuted as an actress in the 1953 film Peloteros (Baseball Players), starring Ramón (Diplo) Rivero, produced in Puerto Rico. She moved to New York City that same year, and was accepted into the Actors Studio by Elia Kazan after a single audition, thus becoming the Studio’s first Puerto Rican member. Her film career spans 30 films and over 75 television series and appearances.
