NEGRITA Documentary

"NEGRITA, written and directed by Magdalena Albizu, is a documentary about the Afro-Latina identity and experience in the United States. In their own words, empowered, self-affirming educated Afro-Latinas, located across the United States, share their experiences of living with a changing, often contested identity in a racialized society and how it affects their personal and professional lives.
NEGRITA aims to establish a ‘black’ consciousness across all generations by reigniting a movement to embrace Latinos’ African roots through a trans-national dialogue on race, identity, ethnicity, nationality and community-building."

In December of 2012, I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the Negrita Documentary. As the creator and producer continue on with their quest of documenting stories of Afro-Latinas, they have launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to help fund the project.

The video below shows some of what they've done already (I have a small cameo in this).
