Tara: 30 Neighbors. 30 Days. Spotlighting diverse Pittsburghers in social media and here on PittsburghUrbanMedia.com 

January 29, Day 10:  

 

“My first event... called Herencia Africana, [which] means African heritage, was celebrating the African roots of Latino culture. I chose that event for two reasons… it was something that could bring together a lot of people, because the African diaspora is something that really connects the world in a lot of ways, whether it is culturally, genetically, linguistically -- in so many ways we can relate to Africa. The other reason... is because for Latinos, ourselves, it is really difficult for people to admit that African culture--African people--is the bedrock for Latino culture.” -- Tara  #IamPGH
