Scars and Healing/Xicatrices y Xanaciones
This series is about the term Latinx and Latinx identity. Our premise builds on Alán Pelaez Lopez’s notion of Latinx as “the visible wound that the ‘X’ forces the Latin American diaspora to confront.” In an effort to heal, this series looks at the wounds of Latinx communities – how we’ve been wounded and how in turn we wound each other. We place urgency on exposing our wounds, because in order to treat an injury, we must see it. Expose it. Examine it. Find its origins and roots.
