La Noche que Nadie Duerme - Huamantla, Tlaxcala, México. 14 de Agosto 2014
fuckyeahmexico

La “Noche que nadie duerme” es parte de una celebración tradicional que se realiza año con año en la ciudad de Huamantla, Tlaxcala, con motivo de la fiesta patronal de la Virgen de la Caridad, la noche del 14 al 15 de agosto, y que atrae a visitantes y turistas tanto de la región, como nacionales y extranjeros.

Se le denomina así a la ocasión en que, durante ésta celebración, la Virgen es bajada de su altar en su basílica y sacada en procesión a recorrer las calles de la ciudad en un carro alegórico, pasando por calles previamente tapizadas con hermosos tapetes de aserrín y flores y adornadas con luces y altares, en medio de una valla de niñas y jovencitas vestidas de inditas que enmarcan el paso de la virgen.

What inspired you to make Brenda’s Got A Baby?
"I was reading the New York Post when I was doing the movie Juice and it was this story - it started out to be this big story about this family who died because they didn’t have heat and they left the gas on. Everybody died except for this girl who moved in with her cousin. (Second cousin.) She started dating her second cousin. He got her pregnant. Nobody knew that she was pregnant, and I was like "dag!" And it was over a week, but the story kept getting smaller and smaller and smaller. And I was like, "This is very important. More important than Juice, to me! It was a bigger story than Juice!
And right now, nobody talks about that. No young black male… No black males talk about black females like we should. We need to take more responsibilities for our sisters because if we don’t, who will? Because if you look at it now, black females are held lower of the totem pole than anybody." (1992)
