About this item

This study examines cultural and literary material produced by Afro-Mexicans on the Costa Chica of Guerrero and Oaxaca, Mexico, to challenge the selective and Euro-centric view of Mexican identity in the discourse about racial and ethnic homogeneity and the existence of black people in the country, as well as assumptions and stereotypes about gender and sexuality. It considers these themes in corridos, oral and lyric poetry (including the collection Alma cimarrona), oral/folk narratives, and the comic series Memín Pinguín.
