Welcome to October! October is Latinx Heritage Month, so we passed the mic to our audio engineer Inés (she/her/hers). She spoke with Julianna Collado (she/her/hers) about Latinx history and her connection to her Afro-Cuban identity. We all related to the importance of food across cultures and family importance. We featured Aldo Pando Girard (he/they), as our Creative of Color, about their poetry and previous accolades. They even blessed us with some beautiful pieces, and discussed the duality of their Afro-Cuban identity.
