April 2018 ~ Issue 31


Our names are Lina and Estephanie and we are two Dominican Afro-Latinx podcasters. We were both born and raised in the Bronx and have been friends since we were 10-years-old. Lina is currently living in Philadelphia where she is attending law school and Estephanie is a Bronx based artist and aspiring graphic novelist.

As Afro-Latinx people, we are erased in the media and people often act like we don’t exist. We use our podcast to elevate and bring awareness to our experiences as Black Latinx womxn. Due to the pervasive Anti-Blackness in our Latinx communities, it can be very hard to embrace our Black identities. We want to challenge ourselves and our communities to know that Black is beautiful and universal.

In 2015 we decided there was a huge lack of representation for Black Latinx voices in the podcasting world and we created Bag Ladiez!
