Méndez’s ‘Negrura’ Showcases Stories of Latin Quarter Cultural District, Premiering April 29
Multi talented singer-songwriter Fabiola Méndez's audiovisual project Negrura will premiere at the Hyde Square Task Force on April 29.
Negrura is an audiovisual storytelling experience that showcases the stories of Afro-Latinx folks from Boston’s Latin Quarter Cultural District. The film aims to create spaces for conversations about colorism, anti-blackness, discrimination, and racism within our own Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latinx community. Music, at the core of the project, connects our voices to provide a space for self-reflection, support, and healing. Following the project's debut, there will be a Q&A hosted by Pedro Reina
This project is supported and made possible in part through the Radical Imagination for Racial Justice (RIRJ) program, a partnership between Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the city of Boston.
