Powered by Latino Rebels/Futuro Media Group

Podcast 1: 9:30-10:30AM

What's Next?: Media, Marketing and Afrolatinx

Now more than ever, today's media has fixed its lens on AfroLatinidad. Though its not a new conversation, the uptick in online discussions, greater visibility of state-sanctioned attacks on Black Latin Americans, and Afro-Latinx media professionals advocating across the industry, among other actions, have led us to this moment. But, where do we go from here? This panel will dissect the current state of Afro-Latinx representation and provide insights on where the industry is heading.

Panelists

Arlene Pitterson, Marketing Strategist

Janel Martinez, Aint I Latina

Cecilia Nelson, L'Oreal

Podcast 2: 11-12PM

From Mixtapes to Streaming: The Power of Curation

Music curation has always been a force in cultural representation and symbolism. Who curates and what gets curated is an important element to cultural and creative representation.

Panelists:

Bobbito Garcia, Culture Curator, DJ, Documentary Filmmaker

James Cruz, Cruz Control Management

Podcast 3: 12:30-1:30PM

Perspectives on Identity, Belonging and Culture
