Recordando a Mamacoatl
January 24, 2-5pm
On Saturday December 12, 2015 the Mission lost a spiritual and artistic warrior, Silvia Mamacoatl Parra, to an early and unforeseen passing from this world. Throughout the streets of the Mission, the simultaneously caustic and enchanting voice of Mamacoatl could be heard on the frontlines of struggles of oppressed and voiceless people suffering at the hands of empire. She was instrumental in bringing to San Francisco The International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls, bringing consciousness and community to struggles she endured in her own life. Among so many other things, she was a musician, a spiritual healer, and self-proclaimed “artivist” Mamcoatl who’s unequivocal message reverberates in the lives she touched.
Among others and among this message, Silvia Mamacoatl Parra is survived by her daughter Paloma Parra McGlothin. As we pay homage and celebrate the life of our beloved friend and comadre, please join us in a multi-media and multi-talented event featuring numerous performers, poets, musicians, artists, an speakers. Participants and contributing artists include, Adrian Arias, Alejandro Murjia, Chelitz Lopez, Nina Serrano, Maria Luna, Paloma Parra McGlothin, Francisco Ferrer, Alfredo Gomez, David El Meletiche, Damian Nuñez, Todd Brown, Victor Navarrete, and many more. This event is a fundraiser and all proceeds for the event will go to Paloma Parra McGlothin.
