Original artwork description:

Libertad is inspired by the struggles of Afro-descendants in Latin America in search of justice and equality. During the last few years, in several Latin American countries, social movements of Afro-descendants obtained the recognition of important collective rights and forced their states and public opinion to accept the persistence of racism in their respective societies. In order to overcome racial discrimination and the social and political exclusion to which they have been historically subjected, however, there is still a long way to go in the fight for true equality. After their emancipation from slavery, Afro-descendants continue to suffer discrimination because of their race or skin color, and the individuals that are part of this group are at a disadvantage due to their membership in that community. Of this group, Afro-descendant women have always been the most affected since they are inserted in a complex system of structural discrimination of both race and gender and the majority still lack the socioeconomic resources and power necessary to achieve physical autonomy. , economic and in decision making. Linking the fight against racism with overcoming gender discrimination and the search for autonomy for Afro-descendant women requires taking on the great challenges as a society for their individual and collective recognition as subjects of rights.
