VH&FD Introduces: Yadira De La Riva and The Social Justice Theater

Working as an artist and educator, I've been blessed with opportunities to collaborate with individuals whose visions outstretch minds and even lifetimes. We grow together as we discuss the infinite ways we aim to evolve personally and artistically while celebrating each other's work along the way. I give thanks to Africano Fotografia for highlighting my work as an educator at Project Morry this past summer and giving me the space to speak on what teaching Social Justice Theater means to me.

Official Blog of Africano Fotografia Photographs Vibrant Hopes & Forfeited Dreams aims to inspire and encourage community-building, empowerment, and social change through the means of photojournalism amongst people and communities of color. We are committed to the idea that we are all life-long teachers and students and therefore have a mutual responsibility to teach one another what we know and learn what we do not. We believe that this is an essential aspect of creative activity/growth and community-building. Questions or Comments? Email us @
