A BreakBeat Poets anthology that opposes silence and re-mixes the soundtrack of the Latinx diaspora across diverse poetic traditions. In the dynamic tradition of the BreakBeat Poets anthology, The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext celebrates the embodied narratives of Latinidad. Poets speak from an array of nationalities, genders, sexualities, races, and writing styles, staking a claim to our cultural and civic space. Like Hip-Hop, we honor what was, what is, and what's next. ๐™๐™๐™ž๐™จ ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™›๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™˜๐™–๐™ฃ ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ž๐™—๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™จ ๐™–๐™ข๐™–๐™ฏ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ค๐™ก๐™ค๐™œ๐™ฎ. ๐™’๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ช๐™จ: Elizabeth Acevedo @acevedowrites Sydney Valerio @sydneywritehere Peggy Robles-Alvarado @robleswrites Roberto Carlos Garcia @robertobelike Gabriel Ramirez @ramirezpoet Jasminne Mendez @jasminnemendez Yesenia Montilla @yeseniamontillapoet Amanda Alcantara @yosoy_amanda Diannely Alicia Antigua @nellfell13 John Paul Infante @infantejp Julian Randall @julianthepoet Ariel Francisco @ariel_francisco Anacaona Rocio Milagro @poet.anacaona
