Actor, activist and the first Latina co-host of "The View," Rosie Perez, joins host Feliciano Garcia to talk about the challenges she faced through her youth and why she fights to keep the arts in underserved schools in New York and Los Angeles through the Urban Arts Partnership.

The proud Puerto Rican also discusses what it was like to introduce hip-hop into the mainstream as the choreographer of the Fly Girls on the classic variety show "In Living Color." She even expresses her thoughts on how to succeed in the industry with dignity.
