My family has roots in the town of Barahona, a region that hosted the largest maroon community in Dominican Republic. I’m working to uncover this legacy for guidance in the ongoing struggle for liberation from the ruins of colonialism. This book is a result of trying to situate my modern diasporic existence within a tradition, and a meditation on the Bahoruco mountain range as a site of power.
