Founded by an Afro-Latina of Panamanian and Colombian descent, Blacktina Magazine is the premiere online magazine for today’s young and progressive Afro-Latina. The magazine offers Afro-Latinas an opportunity to be informed, inspired, and celebrated. With relevant and engaging content, Blacktina Magazine aspires to give voice to a population of women who are often ignored or dichotomized as 'Hispanic' or 'Black.'


Julia, Founder and Editor-in-Chief

"With unique cultures and mixed identities, Afro-Latinas are often overlooked and ignored, or dichotomized as either 'Hispanic' or 'Black.' It is my hope that Blacktina Magazine adds to the many conversations around the complexity of the Afro-Latino identity, especially when anti-blackness is still prevalent in the Latino community."  



Julia was raised in Brooklyn, New York. She is an Afro-Latina of Panamanian and Colombian descent.
