What an amazing podcast. So refreshing. Nothing out there like this. As an Afro Latino, it’s great to finally have a voice. Darilyn does a great time highlighting us. LOVE IT.

Holding Space for US!

Honestly, I’ve always struggled with finding my own niche because of my background and I love & appreciate you for holding this honest and judgement free space for us Afro Latinos. Kicking off the first episode with Amara La Negra and seeing more of us out there as figures for us to see leading the path, keep it going!! Besos y abrazos, vamos a luchar! ♥️

xoxo,
