Happy MLK Day!!!

What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr meant to me…

I don’t know when Dr. King became important to me but he has for sure had a tremendous impact on me. I remember exploring his writings about non-violent civic engagement/disobedience. Listen, being a guy who at times goes against the grain, I naturally gravitated to this philosophy and definitely romanticized the civil rights era. During those times of personal development I leaned heavily into the speeches, writings, themes and events that shaped this period of time. Some days I’d read and listen to whole speeches for leisure. Being a podcaster it should come as no surprise that I am a fan of his voice. Man I could listen to him for hours. Well, as the day comes to a close let’s not forget the reason for the holiday – “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – MLK

Here is what Dr. King means to me:

REWIND: Negrita Come Coco

REWIND: Negrita Come Coco

La Negrita Come Coco es un personaje que promueve la cultura popular dominicana mediante la web y las redes sociales. Lucha por la aceptación de los orígenes afrodescendientes en la sociedad y, de modo jocoso, denuncia las desigualdades presentes en el país.

Todo el contenido de su sitio web y redes sociales, se elabora desde un punto de vista periodístico y en base a entrevistas e  investigaciones previas. 

Su nombre se debe a que en República Dominicana las personas suelen utilizar ese término para discriminar a la mujer de piel oscura y pelo crespo. De este modo, la Negrita se apropia del nombre y se burla de aquellos llenos de prejuicios, demostrándoles que cualquiera con esas características físicas puede ser inteligente y capaz.

Además —con su cuerpo curvilíneo, pelo crespo y piel tostada— muestra que sin importar cómo nos veamos, lo importante es valorarnos.

La Negrita Come Coco is a character who promotes Dominican popular culture through the web and social networks. She fights for the acceptance of Afro-descendant origins in society and, in a humorous way, denounces the inequalities present in the country.

All the content of her website and social networks are prepared from a journalistic point of view and based on previous interviews and research. 

The name originates from Dominican Republic people who often use that term to discriminate against women with dark skin and curly hair. In this way, La Negrita appropriates the name and makes fun of those full of prejudices , showing them that anyone with these physical characteristics can be intelligent and capable.

Plus — with her curvy body, curly hair, and tan skin — she shows that no matter how we look, the important thing is to value ourselves.

Raúl Orlando Edwards and Latin Week Houston 2020 – 25 years of performances, productions and community engagement

Founded by Panamanian-Jamaican artist, Raul Orlando Edwards, Latin Week Houston is the result of over 25 years of performances, productions and community engagement.

This interview was conducted on the Nuestra Palabra show at KPFT Houston studios on December 24, 2019.

Founded by Panamanian-Jamaican artist, Raul Orlando Edwards, Latin Week Houston is the result of over 25 years of performances, productions and community engagement. A journey that began in 1993, Raul has always understood the power the arts have in bringing communities together, in raising awareness on issues, and in transforming lives in a positive way. The City of Houston’s growth in population continues to attract people from around the world which has earned it the designation as “Most Diverse City”. Though an honorable distinction, many areas of the arts do not reflect this fact, especially when looking at Latin American arts presentations. The latter, almost exclusively focuses on the European influences with very little regard to the other major areas that are part of the culture. It is accurate to say that Latin American culture is not Latin American without the Indigenous, the European, the Gypsy and the African. For so long, little or no attention has been given to the undeniable influence Indigenous and African contributions have had in the shaping of the arts, culture and lifestyle in Latin America. This lack of representation was one of the factors that inspired Latin Week Houston. Another factor in the artist’s vision was the fact that though the City of Houston ranks in the top five most populated cities in the country, it did not have an event that strongly and permanently presented the convergence of cultures, music and traditions in one event. Our mission is simple: showcase all influences with dignity and respect while preserving Latin American arts for years to come. From the traditional to current trends, Latin Week Houston’s incredible roster of artists seeks to expose the City of Houston and beyond, with the beauty, the passion and the exuberant energy contained in the many influences that contributed in making Latin American arts what they are today.
