-- “Women Warriors of the Afro-Latina Diaspora” is comprised of 11 essays and four poems in which Latina women of African descent share their stories. The collection is a fascinating look at the legacy of more than 400 years of African enslavement in the Americas. The authors are from all over Latin America—the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Panama, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Brazil—and they write about issues such as colonialism, oppression and disenfranchisement. Join the authors in this discussion about complex identity of Latinas of African descent and the everyday challenges and successful journeys. This event is presented by the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) in collaboration with Encuentro Diaspora Afro and La Casa Azul Bookstore. Dr. Marta Moreno Vega is CCCADI's executive director.WHEN:
