B(lack)NESS & LATINI(dad) is a joint audio and print chapbook that explores the liminal status of being Black, Latino, a father, low income, and other forms of identification. This poetry collection is accompanied by illustrations and music curated by independent artists, with a special emphasis on artists of color and artists in the LGBTQIA community (or both).

This book was a way to heal the past, a way to interpret my past and things that I dealt with, whether it’s anti-blackness from my Latino family—not feeling like I fit in with black people on that side—or using that experience to talk about how race doesn’t exist but racism does, and what that means for multiracial youth who need to hear these kinds of things.
