Tomorrow begins Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month here in the U.S. when we celebrate heritage from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
In today’s episode, Consuelo reflects on Violet Canales’ emotional episode last week, emphasizing the need to come together in building a Latina community of belonging.
But, in a society that looks down on individuality and difference and a culture whose diversity spans the globe, how do we create unity when even the name of this national celebration is morphing from Hispanic to Latinx?
Are we Hispanic? Yes! Are we Latinas? Yes!
Now let’s start the party with our allies and celebrate everything that we contribute and represent.
Consuelo is a first gen Peruvian, structural engineer and mother who encourages women of color, to disregard conformity so their true personalities and talents will make this world a sassy musical rather than a monologue. Viva!
