About Women Warriors of the Afro-Latina Diaspora:
Women Warriors of the Afro-Latina Diaspora is comprised of eleven 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.
