Filmmaker's Bio: 

Centro Pedro Claver Inc. is a community based non profit organization, named after the patron saint of slaves, St. Pedro Claver, and founded by Father David Ungerleider. It was an outgrowth of work by the volunteer-run civil rights organization, the Puerto Rican Alliance, and activists from Franklinville's North Philadelphia community. With the eventual demise of the Puerto Rican Alliance in 1981, El Centro took on a recognized leadership role in the Latino community. Today Centro Pedro Claver's many programs work with neighborhood residents to radically change and contribute to the overall stability, vitality and untapped wealth of the Franklinville community
