Basic Brown Nerds: Ep. 3 - Latinx NYC MeetUp & Latin History for Morons
We’re shaping our narratives ‘cause we are tired of being a model minority. We wanna brunch & build empires. Each episode we’re breaking down identity, society, unlearning & getting real one conversation at time.
🗓️ Wednesday - March 7, 2018
📰 Basic Brown Nerds
This week, Joy and Grecia talk about the Latinx NYC Meetup and disrupting the spaces on Broadway and Brunch. Along with their thoughts on John Leguizamo’s one-manshow “Latin History for Morons.” Touching about African erasure & homophobia in Latinx history and teaser to Juana Inez de La Cruz on Netflix. And what is peak wokeness? Are we ever woke enough? And how do we stop ourselves from being the woke-police (cause they really don’t wanna be the woke-police). Oh and Fangirling to LatinosWhoLunch Podcast that created spaces for Latinx and inspired us to start!!!!
Shout out to everyone involved!

Techqueria is a nonprofit that serves the largest community of Latinx in Tech.
We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source.
Coming from all walks of life, we believe that the diversity of our community is the most reliable asset we have.
Our space aims to be inclusive so we invite Latinx from the regions of the Caribbean, Haiti, and Brazil as well as those who identify as Afro-Latinx, Asian-Latinx or LGBTQIA.
The term Latinx is used instead of Latino or Latina because it is a gender-neutral and inclusive term.
Ultimately, our vision is to become the largest network of Latinx in Tech across the country.
