The book includes, 410 pages, 118,602 words, 165 footnotes, a preface, 14 chapters, and an epilogue.
José Francisco takes readers on a compelling journey of how his quest led him to research his ancestry, and how the power of his racial, ancestral, ethnic, and cultural pride, led to his lifetime mission, to inform, empower, and advocate for his people, which developed into his grassroots social justice advocacy and eventually a transnational movement.
“I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on the stories I wanted to read but had not been written yet, therefore I decided to provide a platform to celebrate the accomplishments, achievements, and contributions of Garifuna people. Those stories, and my lived experiences, form the essence of the book’s storyline of Pan-Garifuna Afro-Latino Power of Pride,” said author José Francisco Ávila.
The official book launch is scheduled for Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 3 pm – 7 pm, at the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Community Center, 1000 Rosedale Avenue, Bronx, NY 10472
The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
