About Black Latina
The narrative depicts the story of today’s Black Latina in the United States. Whether dark- skinned or indeed African-American and Hispanic, Black Latina chronicles the journey of ones struggle identifying with both cultures. It deals with external factors from society to media as well as the internal viewpoints of family and friends . With characters based on the four strongest emotions one confronts in the face of adversity (Anger, Sadness, Love, Empowerment), each character gives testimony justifying the emotional names they carry.
