"The Intersectionality of Blackness in Latine Culture With a Focus on “Romance Architecture, Political Economics of Guayama— Puerto Rico—a Transatlantic Slave Port of Puerto Rico and La Diáspora in North America”

Join Professor Alvilda Sophia Anaya-Alegría, Puerto Rican Economist, Performer, Fine Art and Urban Artist, and Nonfiction Historical Writer in a dance movement and historical experience. Learn the history and steps of Bomba en Guayama through videos and its different African steps, braiding—abrazando the archipelago of Puerto Rico.

As a community, sitting en la plaza de Guayama, we will be engaging and re—experiencing our Latine circular culture complex connection with colonization and Blackness. We will also explore the Taína, Portuguese, Irish, German, French, Danish, and culture slave trades on the Island—Archipelago of Puerto Rico, and its relationship to a parochial religion and LGBTQ+ identities.

Learn more about Professor Anaya-Alegría. 

This event is open to self-identifying Latine, Afro-Latine, and Afro-Caribbean students, faculty, and staff.

Light refreshments will be served and a raffle of Gloria Anzaldúa books will be offered.
