Too Black to be Latina
"Fearful, I deliberately spoke with a Spanish accent even though schools kept placing me in speech courses; I learned to use a fan gracefully, and wore my hair long and straight."
-Cruz-Janzen, p. 4

"The frequent dynamic of Afro-Latino/as being mistaken for Anglo-Blacks in their own Latino communities is emble- matic of the foreignness of Blackness to Latinos."
-Cruz Janzen

"I wanted to speak Spanish because I wanted to swim in the river of her words, her history, my history too."
-Chambers, p. 40

"You may not look at me and know that I am Panamanian, that I am an immigrant, that I am both black and Latin. But like my homeland, I am a narrow being flanked by two oceans of heritage. I'm a secret Latina-at-large and that is more than enough for me."
-Chambers, p. 44
