Celia Cruz the Queen of Salsa #HispanicHeritageMonth
Today for National Hispanic Heritage Month we’re celebrating the life of Celia Cruz, “the Queen of Salsa” – born in Cuba, she was on tour in Mexico when the Cuban Revolution took place, was exiled, and eventually became a United States citizen. She passed away at home in Fort Lee, New Jersey in 2003, and later a plaza at Bergenline Ave & 32nd Street in Union City, New Jersey would be named in her honor. She is buried at the landmarked Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, NYC.
