What inspired you to create Black Latina Negra Bella?
I’m a mother of a two-year-old toddler, and one day, while looking at my daughter and admiring her beauty, I was wondering if she would have to experience some of the challenges I had, too, as a Black Latina in regards to having to explain the complexity of her Latino claim when she doesn’t resemble the media’s perception of a Latina. I want to make it easier by educating as many people as I can about the diversity that exists within the Latino community. This is when Black Latin Negra Bella came to be what it is today, a campaign/movement where we can empower Black Latinas to be who they are and celebrate the diversity among all Latinas.
