some dope stuff going on on twitter right now…
twitter user @thecityofjules decided to start discussing afro-latinx history as she “[was] inspired to tweet about AfroLatinx contributions for Black History Month because so many Latinx publications fail to represent us. I logged into my social media and looked at how white washed a lot of Latinx publications are, and was frustrated.”
as language learners, the language itself is not the only the thing that’s important to engage - the histories and cultures of the places where our target languages are spoken are equally significant and i figured this might interest some of you as you dive deeper into your spanish language study.
i only posted a partial list from the initial thread so check out the other figures mentioned here and jump into the #BlackLatinxHistory hashtag that was created to expand on the conversation in one place to learn more!
que disfruten mucho!
