We honor those whose shoulders we stand on and celebrate our history, our Black History here in the US and I our home countries. We are a testament that we were dropped off everywhere. We are a bridge to understanding a global perspective of Blackness. Some grew up with that awareness and it has helped them navigate an anti-black narrative. Others have faced it later and are moving through it and past it.I have been blessed to have Profe. As a guiding voice in my journey. Interviewing him allowed me to hear out loud how much he has shaped my thinking. For that, I say, Gracias Profe.
I am deeply proud of each person for bringing their full self to this process. I have deep love and admiration for each person on another level after siting with them for this series.
Profe, shared this as we closed out the interview, “this idea of embracing self was deeply rooted in each of us and shining bright in our Blackness was a must. This is a message for the Latino community and for the African American community. We are not outsiders.”
Afro-Latino 365 is our truth, our love of who we are and how we Amplify and show up in a world that does not see us but we see ourselves and that gives us the fire to keep rising.
