Mi Gente… jumping in here on a Sunday to share something I stumbled on hanging out on Twitter. Six exceptional writers (some friends to the site) will get together for a global reading around topics relevant to Afro Latinas. From what I understand there will be a MAJOR announcement during the broadcast, so make sure you do not miss it.
(Thank you Icess for sharing this with me and the #CapicuCulture community)
