June 29, 2021 | Academics, Faculty, Publication

Author and Guttman Professor Dr. Angela Banner Joseph has recently published Autentica! Afro-Latinx Women in the African Diaspora  presenting the stories of Afro-Latinx women.  “I am excited to honor these 24 fearless, trailblazers, women who have individually or collectively owned their African identities in the Americas.” In an era where representation matters, Afro-Latinx Women’s narratives in literature have been extremely far and few between.  Dr. Joseph writes about women who struggle with self, identity, vulnerability and bravery in the face of racism.  By telling these stories, Dr. Joseph gives a space for Afro Latinx Women in the African diaspora to share their lives and authentically be themselves.
