bozalta’s second edition, #bozalta4BlackLives, is a response to the Black Lives Matter Movement’s call to action that we do more to recognize the intersectionalities of Black lives and the multifaceted oppressions that Black people in the US and the world at large experience daily…Speaking to a multiplicity of subjects and concerns  — anti-blackness in Latinx communities, police brutality, mourning, love, solidarities, cross-border familias & the violences of diaspora, etc.  — the contributors to #bozalta4BlackLives offer images, sounds, and texts that generate critical hope in the midst of relentless institutional violence.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: #bozalta4BlackLives

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: #bozalta4BlackLives

Over the past few years, the #BlackLivesMatter movement has brought national attention to the ways in which our Black familia are harassed, gunned down, tear gassed, tasered, ticketed, and otherwise targeted in their homes, neighborhoods, and schools — silenced, abused, and assassinated in for-profit prisons…

We offer #bozalta4BlackLives as a site of continued conversations across differences. We are guided by the work of womxn of color and (U.S.) third world feminists who came before us, who walked and talked solidarity — who were brave enough to organize coalitions, who celebrated emancipation and love.
