There’s the story of who we are as individuals, what we know and walk with, and the story other people create in their minds about who you are. We’re here to set the story straight…

Negra, como soy: I’m Afro-Latina is a show that explores the intricacies and flavors of the AfroLatin experience throughout the Spanish colonized world. We understand that the direct translation is “black like me,” in the feminine. Again, often life is about interpretation, and we’re here to help expand those interpretations, in this corner of life at least

Join Doni Aldine and Rhonda Coleman as they celebrate foods, dance, clothing, language, and customs of their own cultures and others from the diaspora.

In 1993 I had the privilege of traveling to Costa Rica for 9 days with a group of fellow students, a few ppl of color wanted to go to Limon but we were told it was to far away from San Jose. I Still had a good time.

It’s so unfortunate they told you that - it’s actually not that far! But I wonder if the parameters of your program made it prohibitive?
