JENNIFER LOPEZ — HISPANIC SUPERSTAR Few Hispanic entertainers have equaled the success and fame of Jennifer Lopez. Lopez was born into a middle-class Puerto Rican-American family in Bronx, New York, in 1969. Her mother was a kindergarten teacher and her father a computer technician. After high school, Lopez went to college for a semester before quitting to pursue a career as a dancer and actress. Her first big break was getting a job on the hit television comedy series In Living Color as one of the infamous Fly Girl dancers.

For weeks before the parade, the Puerto Rican community holds dozens of cultural and social events, culminating in the 116th Street Festival, which is held the day before. More than fifty smaller parades honoring Puerto Ricans are held throughout the United States on the same day. Today, New York remains the main destination for new Puerto Rican immigrants, although many do not stay. East Harlem (also known as El Barrio), on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, and Washington Heights are the two main communities of New York’s Puerto Ricans.

For example, in his Pieta, modeled after the religious image of Mary holding the body of the dead Jesus, Tapia shows a modern Hispanic mother holding the body of her son, who is a victim of a shooting. Not all Hispanic artists portray serious themes. Cuban American cartoonist Carlos Castellanos and his writing partner, Hector Cantu, first published their comic strip Baldo in 2000. The comic is about the misadventures of a fifteen-year-old Hispanic American boy and his family. It was the first syndicated comic strip about Hispanic Americans by Hispanic Americans.
