Elizabeth Acevedo: The Inspiration
If you've been following me for a while on Instagram, you'll know that this page was inspired by Elizabeth Acevedo. I didn't know who she was until one day, September 22, 2015, when a friend shared a video of hers on Facebook. I watched the video, a performance of her poem "Afro-Latina", and it was like my entire world shifted. I had never felt so understood by someone and it was like I had finally found a box I could check myself into. An identity I never knew I could claim.
