On December 11, 2019, Senator Serrano joined Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Member Maritza Davila, Assembly Member Robert Rodriguez, Assembly Member Danny O'Donell, and Senator Brian Benjamin to celebrate the arts in East Harlem at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute. They were led on a tour by Executive Director Melody Capote and Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, curator of their current exhibit The Color of Power: Heroes, Sheroes, and their Creators.
"As Chair of the Senate Committee on Cultural Affairs, I was thrilled to be a part of this wonderful discussion on the arts and culture in the African Diaspora. The arts have the power to transform lives and representation matters. It is wonderful to see arts and cultural expression as a means of celebrating a shared heritage here in East Harlem."
