Rose Pascale, East Harlem community activist (1916-2009)
http://www.eastharlempreservation.org/docs/rose_pascale.html

Rosa (Marsico) Petruzzelli (1900-2001), pictured here with the "Hell No Ronald Must Go!" sign was born in Acquaviva delle Fonti (Bari), and came to Ellis Island in 1919 with her sister Angelina. She is the grandma of Annie Lanzillotto and great-grandma of Nicole Lanzillotto, and one of our courageous, activist foremothers.

La Societa' di Sant'Anna before statue of Sant'Antonio, 3128 Villa Avenue, Bronx, NY, ca. 1940. Dina Gerasia's Sicilian great grandmother Maria Gerasia Giordano is on the far right with the lace collar and pocketbook.
