Let’s talk AfroLatinidad: Writing as an Act of Liberation with Anyiné “Angie” Galván-Rodríguez
Educator. Blogger. Founder. Writer Dominican born, Puerto Rico and Chicago raised blogger Anyiné (ann-yee-neh) “Angie” Galván-Rodríguez, identifies herself as a AfroLatina. Her journey as a blogger, inspired by her daughter, began in 2013 when she decided to share her experience as she transitioned from relaxed hair to fully natural hair curls through her blog AfroLatina Natural. What began as a “naturalista''blog about her natural hair journey and hair product reviews, flourished into a pathway to embracing and confirming her identity as an Afro-Latina. Her blog and social media platforms are venues of self-expression of her experience of being an Afro-Latino/a in the USA. In addition to sharing hair product reviews for natural curly hair and encouraging more women to go natural, she continues to share her experiences through an Afro-Latina lens as a mother, woman and educator. Ultimately, she hopes her writing will increase awareness of the Afro-Latino experience in the USA and Latin America
