La Joven Guardia del Teatro Latino
Spanish Action League’s Artistic Director Joe Miguel Hernandez Hurtado production of La “Muñeca Negra” (The Black Doll) is a story written by Cuban National poet Jose Marti. The story is one of many on his book series “La Edad de Oro” (The Golden Age). The authors’ idea behind La Edad de Oro was to instill in children ethical and moral values. In “La Muñeca Negra”, the main character, Piedad (Mercy) is the daughter of a white wealthy family. She establishes a very strong bond with her black and worn doll, Leonor. On her birthday, Piedad’s parents give her a beautiful new porcelain doll as gift to replace her old one. Yet, she rejects it and prefers her old and black doll. At the end of the story she explains her choice by saying: “I love you because they do not”. This story demonstrates Jose Marti’s compassion for blacks and his desire to accept those who were not accepted by others.
