"Black, Brown, BEAUTIFUL!" Spoken Word by Elizabeth Acevedo
You may recognize Elizabeth Acevedo from her other popular piece in spoken word "Hair" where she talks about the term "pelo malo" in Latin America. Acevedo is a New York-based spoken word poet and writer.
In this piece, she performs "Afro-Latina." She touches on the topic of being black in Latin America, and how her identity was molded from her family, her friends, her experiences, and the discomfort from being othered.
I wanted to share this video in honor of International Women's Day.
