“There’s so much diversity when it comes to Afro-Latinos that it’s just beautiful when we can all come together and share our differences.” Dana Danelys De Los Santos, better known as Amara La Negra shared this with OkayAfrica.com earlier this year at the Afro Latino Festival of New York.
The 26-year-old Miami-born, Dominican artist is confirmed to join the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Miami this coming January. It will be the latest installment of the hit franchise and will explore the hip hop, Latin, and reggaeton music scene in Miami as well as the rich Latinx culture. Amara shared with Aintilatina.com earlier this year that “They (VH1) decided they wanted to have some Afro-Latino in Love & Hip Hop, and bring some Latin flavor to the show.”
I personally indulge in Love & Hip Hop here and there, I am looking forward to seeing Amara on the show and representing the beauty of being Black and Latina.
