Negro Yo: Representando Raices

NEGRO YO – Ser Afro-descendiente en partes de Latino America y el Caribe es, a veces, algo complicado – el resultado de la ignorancia y falta de educacion que aǘn reina entre mucha gente. Este poema es un homenaje a las generaciones  pasadas y presentes con raices en Africa, quienes con el sudor y la sangre han contribuido tanto a la grandeza del region.
 
To be of African descent in parts of Latin America and the Caribbean is, at times, a complicated matter – the result of ignorance and a lack of education that still plagues so many. This poem is an homage to generations past and present with roots in Africa, who, with their sweat and blood have contributed so much to the greatness of this region.
