I am AfroFilipina and I am invested in creating a space of empowerment and connection. It is also my way of learning more about my Filipino roots. The more I meet and converse with other Filipinos, the more I find that we have in common.
I used to think I was alone in not knowing the missing pieces to family stories, myths and legends. I am also in search of my lost family on the island. Connecting with other Filipinos has reassured that I am not alone in my search for the missing pieces.
Magandang Itim is more than a tagline of AFROFILIPINA. It is the educational and entertainment component of the AFROFILIPINA brand.
We have monthly zoom classes and and workshops with AfroFilipina that are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Filipino diaspora, history, beauty, identity and entertainment.

VLOG AND VIDEO RECAP - MEETING I
This was the first time people from the IG site AfroFilipina joined together in the virtual sphere. The conversation was lively, enlightening, and also very necessary. CoHosting the event was Q the Blasian Badass who talked about what it was like to be Blasian adopted to a family from a different culture. Everyone left feeling refreshed and ready for the next event.
MAGANDANG ITIM is beautiful black in Tagalog. Magandang Itim represents an entire celebration of what it means to be ITIM. Itim is the sum of all things because all colors can be found within the color Black and that is Beautiful! We celebrate ALL people and want to see more beautiful itim representation without any stigma.
Magandang Itim talaga!
This is a long video but I watched it because I had no idea of the challenges children have to find education on the island. Also it is filmed in Mindanao, where my family is from.
