Para Mayra Santos Febres e Hilda Bultrón:
One has to be incendiary enough, sassy and ‘sandunguera’ enough, to assert it.
We, Negras, Mulatto Women have the curves,the wit and all the edges that make up this nation.
We have to get angry, and beyond.
We have to pursue joy.
Be proud of our bodies.
We are resistance, but we are hope. We are faith.
We love men.
But we cannot continue to suffer for them.
We’re nagging beasts, assertive bitches.
But we are powerful. We simply can't.
We’re mad about the perpetuation of racism and stereotypes.
We liberate minds and societies
We don't settle for average,
We push forward.
We overcome the barriers.
We share selfies on social media to challenge the under-representation and plain racism on mainstream media.
We Black Women have a fellowship, a magic sisterhood.
We’re royalty. Somos Majestad Negra, y calabó y bambú.
We’re Isabel la Negra and Lucy Fabery. We’re Ruth Fernández and we are Julia de Burgos.
