Negra Como Soy: Talking About Puerto Rico With Abelsain Gonzalez

Negra Como Soy: Talking About Puerto Rico With Abelsain Gonzalez

In today’s episode, Doni and Dr. Rhonda chat with Abelsain Gonzalez about his recent trip to Puerto Rico where he re-connected with his family and the effects of hurricanes, earthquakes and the pandemic on the island.

There’s the story of who we are as individuals, what we know and walk with, and the story other people create in their minds about who you are. We’re here to set the story straight…

Negra, como soy: I’m Afro-Latina is a show that explores the intricacies and flavors of the AfroLatin experience throughout the Spanish colonized world. We understand that the direct translation is “black like me,” in the feminine. Again, often life is about interpretation, and we’re here to help expand those interpretations, in this corner of life at least.

Join Doni Aldine and Rhonda Coleman as they celebrate foods, dance, clothing, language, and customs of their own cultures and others from the diaspora.
