Summary
In Chocó, Colombia, the Afro-Latino province where Calderón grew up, your skin could be any shade and you'd still be considered blood. Attending high school and college in Medellín, she became familiar with horrifying racial slurs thrown at her both inside and outside of the classroom. Presented her the opportunity of a lifetime at Telemundo in Miami, she was excited to start a new life, and identity, in the United States, where racial boundaries, she believed, had long since dissolved and equality was the rule. Here she discusses building a new identity in the United States in the midst of racially charged violence and political polarization while overcoming fear and confronting hate head on. -- adapted from jacket
