In this episode, we highlight Rita Moreno, living legend and ground breaker for the Latinx community. She's one of 16 people to have achieved the prestigious EGOT distinction: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award winner.
We discuss her Oscar-winning role Anita in WEST SIDE STORY (1961), THE RITZ (1976) where she reprised her Tony award-winning role as Googie Gomez, and her TV roles in GOLDEN GIRLS (Season 2, Episode 26) and ONE DAY AT A TIME (Season 1, Ep 1 and Ep 2).
