This award-winning project started as the formal US focus on Black History Month (February 1-28/9) was upon us. Please know that our goal to celebrate all of the peoples who have influence and history via the African Diasporas. Expanding the inclusively of Blackness is not just during Black History Month but all year round for several of us, self-identified LatiNegr@s, Afr@Latin@s, BlakTin@s, and Afr@-Caribeñ@s.
This site is 365 days a year 24 hours a day 7 days a week! As people who recognize and claim the African heritage and history, we have often been excluded from US History, whether it be Black history, Women's Herstory (March), LGBTQA history, or Latin@ history (September 15-October 15) (to name a few). Join us in honoring and recognizing LatiNegr@s this year during Black, Women, LGBTQA, and Latin@ History Month and year round! We are Black, Latin@ and from all over the world! We REPRESENT!
