A Word From La Galeria

Join us for a discussion on negritud/blackness in the Dominican Republic and the Diaspora. Using articles, social media, and other resources, we will discuss what it means to be black in the Dominican Republic and the Diaspora

We are providing a space for dialogue. We claim a general understanding of the topic and encourage research, as we do not have any expertise outside of our individual experiences and thoughts.

La Galería is the place in which family, neighbors, and guests gather to discuss everything from the latest chisme to social and political issues. It is the place where dialogue and debate are welcomed and encouraged. Galerías are not exclusive to a particular class; some are built-in, others are an impromptu creation. We are recreating galerías to provoke conversations on topics that affect Dominicans in the Diaspora.
