Victoria Santa Cruz Centennial CEDET Presentation: Making Blackness Visible Outside Peru

It was my great pleasure to contribute a virtual presentation to another event in Lima, Peru honoring Victoria Santa Cruz and reflecting upon her legacy in the year of her Centennial. On June 28, 2022, CEDET presented a roundtable “Conversatorio” (with Mariela Noles Cotito, Sofía Carrillo Zegarra, and María del Pilar Cáceres Cartagena) dedicated to the topic “Me Gritaron Negra: Structural Racism and Its Impact on Afrodescendants, an Intersectional Analysis.” My pre-recorded remarks addressed Victoria Santa Cruz’s promotion of Black arts and culture in her career outside Peru.
