Es Mi Cultura Newsletter

Afro-Latina ~ A woman with roots from any Latin American country 

that is of, relates, or celebrates African ancestry 

As a writer, I've always taken special interest in writing articles that explore Afro-Latina themes. Which I have done in various fashions, on various sites. The desire to take this a little further has been on my mind for a while now, and is finally manifesting into something I am very excited about.

Specifically being launched during this year's Latino Heritage Month, Es Mi Cultura spreads awareness of the wonderful contributions Afro-Latinas are making to further advance our presence. Each month this newsletter spotlights an Afro-Latina and all her sabor, provides links to various articles and personal stories penned by, about, or for Afro-Latinos, along with book features, and additional information.

While this newsletter is aimed towards Afro-Latinas we need to see people who look like us. Es Mi Cultura is for readers of both genders, all races, cultures, and backgrounds. 

The first newsletter will be launched on Monday, October 5, 2015. Sign up here so you don't miss out.

Hopefully we can meet up soon. Representation of the Afro Latina is very much appreciated and needed. Kudos!
