Meet Danyeli the Poet behind AfroDominicanxThings


This week Joy and Grecia talk with Danyeli Rodriguez Del Orbe. Danyeli is a Bronx-based Dominican poet that writes about growing up Afro-Latinx, Dominican, undocumented, and avoiding dusty men. We discuss her move to LA, she warns us about Dominican men, and gives us the wisest "Take Out the Trash" segment ever. Follow Danyeli along on his journey on Instagram @danyelirodriguezdelorbe
