https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPx8cSGW4k8 or search YouTube for “Elizabeth Acevedo Afro-Latina”
Then, in 1-2 paragraphs, address the following prompt:
When speaking about this poem, Elizabeth Acevedo has said: “‘Latina’ just didn’t feel specific enough. I didn’t feel it adequately represented the way I walked through the world as not only someone who first spoke Spanish, but who also strongly identified with the blackness of my ancestry.”
In what ways is this poem an example of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s idea of intersectionality? In what ways (using examples from the poem) does Acevedo argue that “Latina” not an adequate label for her identity? What do you think she means when she says of Afro-Latino/a/xs (masculine, feminine, and gender inclusive terms for people of African and Latin American descent) that “our bodies have been bridges”? Why do you think she uses this image of the bridge?
