Las Estrellas Son Negras by Arnoldo Palacios

The book is a poignant narrative set in the Chocó region of Colombia, where it delves into the harsh realities faced by Afro-Colombian communities. Through the eyes of its protagonist, the story explores themes of racial discrimination, poverty, and the struggle for survival in a society marred by social inequality. The protagonist's journey is one of resilience and determination, as he confronts the systemic barriers that oppress his community, revealing the often invisible suffering of marginalized groups in Latin America. The title itself, translating to "The Stars Are Black," serves as a metaphor for the obscured hopes and dreams of those living under the shadow of oppression.
