Day Fifteen: February 21, on Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, I am recommending the following five texts on Afro-Latin American Literature:
- “Man-Making Words: Selected Poems of Nicolas Guillen” by Nicolas Guillen
- “Juyungo” by Adalberto Ortiz
- “Changó, the Biggest Badasss” by Manuel Zapata Olivella
- “Drums under my skin” by Luz Argentina Chiriboga
- “Our Lady of the Night” by Mayra Santos Febres
*** Every day is Black History Month.
Every day we celebrate human beings created in the image of God.
Every day we celebrate the gift of life and the gift of black life because black people and all people MATTER to God.
