Memory´s Uncomfortable Hues

This book combines the accuracy of research and the literary talent of the storyteller. The author talks with keenness and charisma about the most distressing elements of the human condition. Particularly, about the hardships of life as a black person in Colombia and the world. In the profiles of poets, baseball players and radio hosts, the weight of collective history and the intimacy of a personal account intertwine.
