A conversation with artist María Gaspar and her work with the color “brown” led me to thinking about all the songs we have related to “brown” as a metaphor for our Latinidad, and in Spanish, those that speak of piel morena. So, inspired by all these ideas, this week’s Beat Latino is an ode to the color brown and the Browning of America! Here’s to all our mixtures that make us special and different, and the richness that Brown brings to the world and in particular, the Americas, north and south. #brownisbeautiful #celebrateallthecolors
