Our Lady Queen of Harlem: A Portrait of Faith and Rebellion
“Some people have said to me that I am in disobedience, and because of that I’m in sin. We are not in sin, we are fighting for our rights!” --Carmen Villegas, parishioner and protest organizer

On a crumbling sidewalk in the heart of Spanish Harlem, a small but impassioned group of women are fighting for their community. When the Archdiocese of New York locked the doors of the church where many of them spent their entire lives worshiping, this determined family of parishioners decided to resist the ministerial decision and take matters into their own hands. A portrait of faith and disobedience, OUR LADY QUEEN OF HARLEM is an exploration of activism and the very definition of church. Part of the Call for Change Series.
