In Colombia, the work and activism of indigenous people and Afro Colombians led to ratify their civil, educational, cultural, and political rights in the Constitutional reform of 1991. This reform also recognized Colombia as a multicultural country. In this research discussion, the presenters will share in a conversation style, their collective written work: an Academic Personal Narrative article based on Intersectional Theory (Collins & Blige, 2020; & Crenshaw, 1989). They will reflect on the construction of relations and the disruption of hierarchies that this type of work involves, the lived experiences of the two coauthors who identify as Afro-Colombian, and how they have successfully navigated oppressive contexts.
