Yvette Modestin of Projecto Colon and co-author/editor of Women Warriors of the Afro-Latina Diaspora joined us this week. She shared with us her own life story of being an Afro-Latina from Colon, Panama and the politics of gender, race and ethnicity in the context of anti-colonial/imperial movement-building. In the second half of the show we heard from some of the contributors to A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X. We heard from contributors Dr. Rosemari Mealy and Mumia Abu-Jamal and talked a bit more about the nature of their contributions and the overall project itself.
