About the Book
B(lack)NESS & LATINI(dad) explores the liminal status of being Black, Latino, a father, low income, and more. This poetry collection is accompanied by illustrations curated by independent artists, with a special emphasis on artists of color and artists in the LGBTQIA community (or both). Through the use of spoken word poetry, Hip-Hop, oral histories and auto-ethnography, this project illustrates the power of the narrative and how it embodies a radical challenge to the popular narratives that are spread about race, marginalized people, and resistance. This is the print portion of the B(lack)NESS & LATINI(dad): Liminality multimedia project. The album can be found here https://iamsubversive.bandcamp.com/ .

I am Vincente Perez and I am SubVersive. As a Poet, activist, musician and more, I focus on the lived experiences of race in America through several mediums. My work centers on Black and Latin@ experiences with a special emphasis on Hip-Hop, Spoken word, Narratives, and Identity Politics. Through a unique style of mixing political commentary, personal experience, and poetry, I do my best to challenge the idea that we live distinct political, social, and economic lives. Drawing on my experience growing up in Kansas City and attending the University of Chicago, I adapt to all audiences in relatable, entertaining, and informative ways.
