WHO GETS TO BE PART OF LATINIDAD?

While Valery fights to prove Ximena isn't Cuban, Alia has given up fighting that she is Latine. As the women in this play discover the truth about themselves and each other, they also have to face the internal bias that allowed a white woman to be Cuban but didn't allow a Belizean to call herself Latine.

Inspired by the cultural appropriation scandals of Rachel Dolezal and Jessica Krug, “Black Mexican” tells the story of Ximena, a White university professor posing as a Cuban woman, while Alia, an Afro-Latine Belizean, continues fighting for her place in the spectrum of Latinidad. Black Mexican explores colorism and the struggles with identity within the Latine community.
