¡Azúcar! The Life and Music of Celia Cruz
This week we celebrate the women of Salsa, and we begin with the legendary Afro-Cuban signer Celia Cruz, a master of many different genres of Afro-Caribbean song with a rich powerful voice and electrifying stage presence! The story of Celia Cruz can inspire students to explore a wide range of subjects, including immigration, history, geography, music theory, music history, and art.
The Smithsonian National Museum of American History has an exhibition site, ¡Azúcar! The Life and Music of Celia Cruz where you can learn about the life, music, and personal style of Celia Cruz. There educators can find lessons in PDF version that can be downloaded and printed for classroom use. The lesson plan, “Exile: Cuba and the United States” focuses on Celia’s homeland and the events of the Cuban revolution and its effect on U.S./Cuban relations and U.S. foreign policy. On a lighter note the “Design Your Performance” lesson guides learners through understand the role of aesthetics and style in the performing arts through exploring photos and musical performances of Celia Cruz as inspiration for set and costume design. These lessons range for learners K-12 so there is something to engage everyone, and the site and resources are bilingual.

After suffering through a baseball drought that lasted 52 years, all that changed on April 15, 1954, when Baltimore became a major league city and some 350,000 jubilant Baltimoreans lined the streets to witness the triumphal parade that welcomed the Orioles.
In 1967, Kathrine Switzer (a 20-year-old junior at Syracuse University) was the first woman to run the Boston marathon with an official race number - she only signed up with her first and middle initial and her last name. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

Sarah (Sally) Bassett, an enslaved Bermudian woman who in June 1730 was burned at the stake. She was accused of attempting to poison her granddaughter’s owner. Earlier in 1712, Bassett was accused of damaging property, killing livestock, and threatening landowners. For this, she was whipped the length of Southampton Parish (involving more than 100 lashes). It is said that on her way to her execution she said to those on the way to witness her execution to take their time because “There’ll be no fun ‘til I get there.”
In 2008, a ten foot tall statue of Bassett (pictured above) was erected in Hamilton.
