Ladies and Gentlemen. The iconic, the powerful Afro Peruvian choreographer, composer, and activist. Victoria Santa Cruz, here is her famous poem “Me Gritaron Negra” 🇵🇪🇵🇪🇵🇪🇵🇪🇵🇪 #afrolatinas #afrolatinos #peru #afroperuvian #africandiaspora #negra
__________
Tenía siete años apenas,
¡Qué siete años!
¡No llegaba a cinco siquiera!
De pronto unas voces en la calle
me gritaron ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
“¿Soy acaso negra?”- me dije
¡SÍ!
“¿Qué cosa es ser negra?”
¡Negra!
Y yo no sabía la triste verdad que aquello escondía.
¡Negra!
Y me sentí negra,
¡Negra!
Como ellos decían
¡Negra!
Y retrocedí
¡Negra!
Como ellos querían
¡Negra!
Y odie mis cabellos y mis labios gruesos
y mire apenada mi carne tostada
Y retrocedí
¡Negra!
Y retrocedí . . .
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Neeegra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
Y pasaba el tiempo,
y siempre amargada
Seguía llevando a mi espalda
mi pesada carga
¡Y cómo pesaba!…
Me alacié el cabello,
me polvee la cara,
y entre mis entrañas siempre resonaba la misma palabra
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Neeegra!
Hasta que un día que retrocedía , retrocedía y qué iba a caer
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¡Negra! ¡Negra! ¡Negra!
¿Y qué?
¿Y qué?
¡Negra!
Si
¡Negra!
Soy
¡Negra!
Negra
¡Negra!
Negra soy
¡Negra!
Si
¡Negra!
Soy
¡Negra!
Negra
¡Negra!
Negra soy
De hoy en adelante no quiero
laciar mi cabello
No quiero
Y voy a reírme de aquellos,
que por evitar -según ellos-
que por evitarnos algún sinsabor
Llaman a los negros gente de color
¡Y de qué color!
NEGRO
¡Y qué lindo suena!
NEGRO
¡Y qué ritmo tiene!
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
Al fin
Al fin comprendí
AL FIN
Ya no retrocedo
AL FIN
Y avanzo segura
AL FIN
Avanzo y espero
AL FIN
Y bendigo al cielo porque quiso Dios
que negro azabache fuese mi color
Y ya comprendí
AL FIN
¡Ya tengo la llave!
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO NEGRO
NEGRO NEGRO
¡Negra soy¡

Doing research on this broke my heart! #LibyanSlaveTrade in twenty fucking seventeen! I know its thanksgiving, and though I'm not on good terms with some family members I'm appreciative of being alive and sharing that freedom with them. These men and women don't have that option! I'm posting to start this conversation on my platform, cause we know the media is not going to cover this in dept. What are ideas/solutions? #Africandiaspora

This video work by Victoria Santa Cruz “addresses the public loudly, proudly, and defiantly, repeatedly chanting ‘Negra!’ The artist poetically recasts what was once an insult directed to a younger self, in a powerful pronouncement that resonates today, loudly and assertively, just as it had 40 years ago.” —Elena Shtromberg, associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Utah.
Victoria Santa Cruz (Peruvian, 1922–2014), “Me gritaron negra (They shouted black at me),” 1978. Video documentation of performance, excerpted from the documentary “Victoria—Black and Woman” (1978).

Dating to the early 1800’s, St John’s Cathedral is the oldest surviving building of Belize’s colonial period as well as the oldest Anglican Church in Central America.
The church was built by slaves from bricks brought to Belize as ballast in the hulls of ships sailing from Europe. The building took eight years to complete.

I put my hands on these bricks.

The earliest reference to African slaves in the British settlement appeared in a 1724 Spanish missionary’s account, which stated that the British recently had been importing them from Jamaica, Bermuda, and other Central American British Colonies. A century later, the total slave population numbered about 2,300. Most slaves were born in Africa, and many slaves at first maintained African ethnic identifications and cultural practices. Gradually, however, slaves assimilated and a new, synthetic Kriol culture was formed.

When the slave trade occurred, the slaves in Belize, were used primarily for logging which was different from the experiences of slaves in other Caribbean countries and the Americas. Slaves in Belize worked in scattered groups in the forests, separated from their families in Belize city. Because of the kind of work they did slaves were able to maintain some control over their lives. Historical records of black slaves report that they were “introduced” from Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba and Bermuda but some were brought directly from Africa, or from the United States. During this period, Congoes, Nangoes, Mongolas, Ashantees, Eboes, and other African tribes could be found in Belize. One section of Belize town was known throughout the first half of the 19th century as Eboe town. The black people in Belize are the descendants of slaves brought in to work as woodcutters in the forests.

Posted @withrepost@dr.eadlox It’s not BlackFriday” in #Aruba its “Black Weekend” 😄👊🏾🙌🏾the island has a very interesting history of segregation .. although there is that slogan “One Happy Island 🌴 “... the difference between lighter skin “Arubans “ and darker skin Antilliens in terms of access, social class, education , jobs etc is an unfortunate age old issue of places where Africans were enslaved .... so important to open our eyes when we travel and truly “ see” ..

My 1804 movie has arrived. It's a documentary about the Haitian Revolution that saw the enslved people of Haiti rise up against their white European slavers and oppressors. Great commentary about how enslaved women and an army of men gained their freedom. Also, a clip of the horrible televangelist Pat Robertson showing his un-godly, white supremacist nature while talking about Haiti is very eye opening. The first to be killed in the only successful slave rebellion in history were the black collaborators of white supremacy. This documentary will also remind you how horrifically terrible Napoleon was, how horrible Christopher Columbus was and how horrible American Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson were. #1804movie #haiti #haitian #haitianrevolution #slave #slavery #colonialism #blackpower #blacklivesmatter #blackfriday #blackmoneymatters #blackwealth #blackwealthmatters #blackhistory #africa #african #africandiaspora #blackownedbusiness @tariqelite #ezilidanto #akala #wyclef

COUNTDOWN TO #artafricamiami ~ We are thrilled to have #PhilippeDodard join @artafricamia this December once again!
Dodard rose to preeminence in 2012 when American designer Donna Karan used his collection for her Spring collection. Philippe explores the iconographic aesthetics found throughout the Caribbean and Africa to create a visual language that is both contemporary and historical. He is the Director of the National School of Arts in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

ART AFRICA 2017 explores how Black Arts respond to the assaults that currently beset the global African Diaspora and the world at large and how artists of African descent and of the global south create modes of intervention of radical autonomy.

For our 7th edition, Art Africa Miami presents ""BACK TO BLACK: No On/Off Ramps"", a multimedia presentation including paintings, sculptures, photography, installation and video as well as performance exploring how alternative narratives confront the resurgence of oppression and the idea of Black arts’ intervention in the cultural sphere as both necessary and urgent.
