Welcome to the Evelina 100 Portal.
This website is dedicated to the memory and enormous contributions of activist, organizer and educator EVELINA ANTONETTY (aka ‘the Hell Lady of the Bronx’) and her life-long efforts to provide value, resources, and dignity to the people of the Bronx.
As such, this portal is a ever-expanding and evolving documentation—a living space—that aggregates the digital ephemera of her life, struggles, and the positive impacts she brought to bear for the benefit of her beloved community.
