This Thursday September 15th Maria Rodriguez and I push aside pop culture politics to talk the plight of Puerto Rico on #TheEmpowHERmentHour and what this economic/humanitarian crisis means for la isla and our people. Joining us as our special guest is Dorothy Bell Ferrer aka @insurgent_prieta
Dorothy is currently working on becoming both a juris doctorate and medical doctorae candidate, she is an avid blogger who does much of her advocacy through writing about her experiences and sharing her narrative as an afrocaribeña.
She specializes as a writer and advocate in Afropuertorriqueñidad, the complexities of healing for black women, the Puerto Rican independence movements, cultural and racial identity, and socialism that caters to black and indigenous populations throughout Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.
She has served as a staff writer for LaRespuesta Media, has been published in La Galeria magazine, has presented workshops and “conversatorios” at Depauw University in Indiana, and in Piñones, Loiza, Puerto Rico and has been interviewed by Latina Magazine.
Tune in this Thursday and join the conversation.
