"I used to feel as though if I identified as black, I wasn’t claiming my Latina identity. I wasn’t accounting for my love of sancocho or my natural rhythm for bachata. I felt as though I was claiming to be someone who I wasn’t. Now that I’m older and truly understand the difference between race and ethnicity, I can truly own who I am.  I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent my darker skinned Latina ladies with kinkier hair. No, we aren’t always mixed. No, we aren’t always African-American. We are simply black Dominicans. Black Puerto-Ricans. Black Colombians. Black Panamanians."
