The Chicago Park District / Night Out in the Parks is proud to continue its "Your Night Out At Home" video series. We can't be more excited to partner with The Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center. This is what happens when Bomba meets Barcelona!!
Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center (SRBCC) is the longest-standing Latino cultural center in Chicago. Established in 1971, it was named in honor of Segundo Ruiz Belvis, a Puerto Rican patriot and member of a secret abolitionist society that freed slave children under Spanish rule. In that spirit, SRBCC realizes its mission to preserve and promote appreciation of the culture and arts of Puerto Rico and Latin America, with a focus on its African heritage.
