Fabiola Méndez’s project Negrura is an audiovisual storytelling experience that showcases the stories of Afro-Latinx folks from Boston’s Latin Quarter Cultural District. The film aims to create spaces for conversations about colorism, anti-blackness, discrimination, and racism within our own Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latinx community. Music, at the core of the project, connects our voices to provide a space for self-reflection, support, and healing.


Fabiola is a Puerto Rican cuatro player, educator, and composer, taking part in a musical movement, crossing over lines of genres such as folkloric, jazz, and Latin.


Negrura is made possible through the Radical Imagination for Racial Justice (RIRJ) program, a partnership between Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) and City of Boston Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture; as well as Hyde Square Task Force and Ágora Cultural Architects.



Produced by: Fabiola Méndez | Directed by: Monica Cohen | Edited by: Paloma Valenzuela | Color by: Jorge Roman | Audio mixing: Alex Maury López
