CHILD OF THE AMERICAS BY AURORA LEVINS MORALES PDF

As the author addresses the issues of identity, history and citizenship, the major idea of Aurora Levins Morales is to explain the readers that today, in the society free from slavery, there is a so-called new paradigm of tolerance that gives an opportunity to the descendants of natives and immigrants to view their own identities. Aurora Levins Morales uses a collage of elements that symbolically demonstrate her multiple identity: I am not African. Africa is in me, but I cannot return. I am not European. Europe lives in me, but I have no home there.
