The Intersectional Afro-Latina Experience Webinar

March 9, 2021


Pew Reports that 1 in 4 Latinas self-identify as afro descendant. Matters of race and identity are incredibly interconnected. Our struggles and the culture we create in America is increasingly intersectional. As Black History month comes to a close, we reflected on the importance of exploring the little-known history and cultural impact of Afro-Latino culture. From a shared struggle with segregation, hate crimes, colorism and erasure; to the rich cultural creations in music, entertainment and sports. Watch this rich conversation with three Afro Latina leaders sharing their experiences from three different perspectives.
