Beyond Febrero 3. Black History is more than just a month.

I had the opportunity to speak with Jennifer Saldaña Whyte for episode three in this small series titled: Beyond Febrero. Black History is more than just a month.

Jennifer brings her #authenticvoices and perspective to this very important conversation. Both her and her husband are Afro Latines from the Dominican Republic, and Panama. Giving this conversation a critical, and authentic perspective that is lacking today in public conversations, around topics of identity and cultural representation.

In this conversation, Jennifer discusses the importance of sharing her lived experiences as an Afro Latina with her students, from personal anecdotes, to sharing about her daughter's quinceanera, to even inviting students to participate in out of school activities.  Her perspective is inviting and refreshing.
