If you’d like to reblog our essays in their entirety, please reach out for permission first (Note: We will almost always allow it but this is a courtesy that you should always extend to the original authors of posts you find on the internet).
We often share material created by others. If you discover and would like to clip/share material that was created by someone other than the LatiNegr@s or by individual LatiNegr@s writing in other places (e.g. Tony Otero at Huffington Post or Bianca Laureano at Latino Sexuality), a simple “via,” “by,” or “hat tip” (or “H/T”) to them and the full link to the blog where citations come from will do. However, please make sure to reach out to the original owner to find out what permissions you might need to share their work. And, in all things, acknowledge the original creator in your clip, excerpt, or share.
If you are using material found here in a scholarly work, refer to your favorite citation guide. Almost all of them have instructions for how to cite blogs and websites. To help you along, here are a few examples below:
Blog posts and comments are usually left out of the bibliography but you should “cite in running text (“In a comment posted to The Becker-Posner Blog on February 23, 2010, …”)” or more formally in a note:
1. The LatiNegr@s Project (or individual author), Month Day, Year of Post (H:MM p.m.), comment on The LatiNegr@s Project, “Post Title,” The LatiNegr@s Project, Month Day, Year of Post, URL.

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 LatiNeg@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!
