This is an intercommunal conversation between Black people across the diaspora — African Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Latinxs, etc. — hosted by brujas exploring the intersections and solidarities through music, culture, media, activism, and art. Interactive open conversation will explore our roots with the goals of disrupting antiblackness globally and creating and improving shared languages and mentalities among the diaspora to generate solidarity and ultimately, revolution.
