Dany Garcia has announced her latest thought provoking initiative, #LatinxTheMosaic, to discuss the intricate and sensitive intersection of racism and colorism within the Latinx community. Hosted by Garcia, prominent figures, influencers, actors, filmmakers and trailblazers in the Latinx community will join the round-table discussion to share their personal stories to educate and bring awareness to these roots within the culture.
The conversation will be moderated by Fordham University School of Law Professor Tanya Kateri Hernandez. Joining as panelists will be Emmy-winning host and personality Lilliana Vazquez, “Orange Is the New Black” Actress Dascha Polanco, Peloton VP of Fitness Programming Robin Arzón, and Filmmaker/Cinematographer Nadia Hallgren.
Afro-Latina author, educator and visual artist, Reyna Noriega, has crafted a poster for the initiative; a beautiful depiction of celebration, authenticity and honor of women and Latinx culture.
The virtual discussion will stream through multiple social channels broadcast using Garcia’s accounts. The goal is to have a genuine dialogue, while honoring and advocating for unique, intersectional experiences.
