MIAMI - July 13, 2020 - PRLog -- Buena Vida Media leads a three part series of conversations on racism and colorism in the Latino community, to educate and equip Latinos in examining and confronting racism and colorism; to strategize on how to be effective allies to Black Americans in the fight for racial justice and to intentionally raise children who are anti-racist. The frank and structured conversations will be streamed on the Buena Vida Media Facebook page with a panel of professionals from different parts of the nation.

"The fight for racial justice in America has made it imperative that Latinos begin to examine the entrenched racism and colorism found in our own communities. We understand that not all organizations can or should lead these difficult conversations, but building a culture of diversity, inclusion and equality is part of Buena Vida Media's core competencies from day one and uniquely positions us to layout a roadmap so that others gain courage and can effectively lend their voice to the conversation," stated Janie Flores, President of Buena Vida Media and host of the award winning "Janie Flores Live" business talk show on, the only business station and Bloomberg News affiliate in South Florida.
