Who We Are
AfroChicano Press® is a specialized publisher devoted to books that document and articulate the blended African/Mexican experience. Advocates of self-representation, AfroChicano Press® strongly supports literature that explores the self as subject.
AfroChicano Press® advocates the exercise of individual power via self-representation.
We exist to bring to market quality literature authored by and/or about people of mixed African/Mexican ancestry.
AfroChicano Press® is a niche press dedicated to producing literature that articulates the varied experiences and perspectives of individuals of mixed African/Mexican ancestry.
We believe individuals can subject themselves to social science inquiry, and that one need not tell their story to another individual to be acceptable scholarly literature.
We believe that individuals are able to tell their own stories, from their own perspectives, and in their own voices.
We believe authors/scholars can collaborate with individuals who desire support expressing their stories and that collaboration can be achieved in a manner that maintains the subject’s individual power.
AfroChicano Press® is committed to high quality literature whose production and sale positively impacts authors, readers, employees, the local community and the world.
We believe the AfroChicano community is under-represented in scholarly literature and under-recognized by society at large.
We value AfroChicano history, culture, experiences and voices.
