As we sift through the emotions and our responses to the impact of recent protests and our commitment to the Black Lives Matter #Lasvidasnegrasimportan movement, Beat Latino’s selection this week is a set of songs to remind us that our own Americas and our AfroLatinx have and continue to grapple with racism and its toxic legacy, the struggle extends beyond all borders. From Colombia to Mexico to Peru to Chile, songs to ponder and energize to action.
