"We decided to bring back Black Latina: The Play to the forefront of 2013 because as one of the fastest growing communities in the United States, we want to expose the triumphs and struggles that can come from within and in our own circles," says Apryl Lopez, President of The Black Latina Movement.
The narrative depicts the story of today's Black Latina in the United States. Whether dark-skinned or indeed African-American and Hispanic, Black Latina chronicles the journey of ones struggle identifying with both cultures. It deals with external factors from society to media as well as the internal viewpoints of family and friends . With characters based on the four strongest emotions one confronts in the face of adversity (Anger, Sadness, Love, Empowerment), each character gives testimony justifying the emotional names they carry.
