+Sobre el programa Fulbright

Danielle Brown is an African-American researcher and writer from Los Angeles, California. In 2011 she received a US Fulbright grant that enabled her to travel to Uruguay and conduct research about Afro-Uruguayan women writers and their contributions to newspapers that were established by the Afro-Uruguayan community throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Brown is the coordinator and co-editor of “Memoria Viva: historias afrodescendientes del Cono Sur,” a book anthology sponsored by the US Embassy of Montevideo and published by the Uruguayan imprint Linardi y Risso. This publication was inspired by Brown’s Fulbright research as well as the historical events that occurred in 2011, such as the commemoration of the bicentennial of Paraguay and Uruguay as well as the United Nation’s declaration of 2011 as the international year to commemorate people of African descent. Brown is an alumna of VONA, a program sponsored by the Voices of Our Nation Foundation that promotes emerging writers of color in the United States. She received her bachelor’s degree in literature from Pitzer College and has written for African-American newspapers and independent publications in California.

    Hi Danielle, My name is Sofia and I am one of the incoming Fulbright ETAs to Uruguay. I stumbled upon your blog and am really inspired. I’m wondering if you’ll still be in the area in the coming weeks. I am really interested in the Afro-Uruguayan community, candombe, community building, education and feminism and am looking to get involved with some community orgs/do some research while in Uruguay. Maybe we could meet up if you’re still around. Let me know if it’s a possibility.
