I am an Afro-Boricua writing about 19th century Puerto Rican life from the point of view of Afro-descendientes on the plantations and their transition to town life. I am especially interested in the community of Hoyo Mula and what it might have looked like. Two years ago I heard a presentation at the Prrimer Congreso de Afrodescendencia at UPRRP where they discussed Cangrejos and the elements of African decorative art that was to be found in the homes in the area. I thought maybe you could give me more information about either of these topics.
I am writing my third novel and doing research on the lives of the afro community of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.
Thank you very much in advance, for any information you may have for me.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
