News and Views by and about Black Latinos                         
  ABOUT US

Welcome to VidaAfroLatina.com, a digital media publication featuring news and views by and about Afro-Latinos in the United States and throughout the Americas.

Millions of people in the U.S. self-identify as both Latino and Black. And it is estimated that one-third of the population of Latin America and the Caribbean—approximately 150 million people—is of African descent.

Black impact on the economic, political, spiritual and cultural evolution of every Latin American country is beyond quantifiable. Still, Black Latinos are woefully underrepresented in general market, Latino and African-American media.

VidaAfroLatina.com has been created to fill that gap.

We provide information and opinion focused on the unique experiences, achievements and needs of Black Latinos. VidaAfroLatina.com is a celebration of the culture, heritage, beauty and ongoing contributions of Latinos of African descent.


VidaAfroLatina.com also covers the unprecedented interaction among Black and Latino communities, cultures and people. We tell new stories of African descendants connecting with the Hispanophone and Lusophone worlds—and with each other.


Journalist and author Lori S. Robinson is the founding editor of VidaAfroLatina.com. Her work has been published in a variety of newspapers and magazines, including The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Detroit Free Press, Heart & Soul, The Crisis, Essence and The Source.
