(Pictured: A scene from one of my comics at BainaColonial.Com)
In Early 2016 I started BainaColonial.Com, my comic on navigating Latin America in a black female body. It is written and illustrated by me, from an anticolonial Afrolatina feminist point of view. Baina or Vaina is a term Dominicans use to signify a “thing”, it can be just about any “thing”. In this case, Baina Colonial means Colonial Things. Because the mentalities and structures I point out are Colonial/Antiblack legacy Spaniards and other Colonizers/Enslavers left with us.
You can now purchase your own hard cover collection of Baina Colonial at shopzahirakelly.com.
Due to requests from educators I also made my comics available for free.
