I am Sandra Abd’Allah-Alvarez Ramírez. I was born in Havana in 1973, one day after the events at the Palacio de la Moneda, Chile. I have a degree in Psychology from the University of Havana, 1996; Master in Gender Studies, 2008; and a Diploma in Gender and Communication by the International Institute of Journalism José Martí.

I write this blog since June 2006, unless otherwise noted, all text and photos are my own. I research on issues related to racism and racial discrimination in Cuba, including representation in the media and the arts of black women; the impact of the use of social networks in activism for sexual and reproductive rights of people with no gender identities and sexual orientations heteronormative; women in the use of ICT, the racial variable in censuses in Cuba, women in hip hop, among others.

Greetings from Los angeles! I'm bored to death at work so I decided to check
out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love
the information you provide here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..

I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!
