New-Generation Afro-Panamanian Writers Melanie Taylor and Carlos Oriel Wynter Melo
This chapter engages the respective feminist and postmodern literature of Taylor and Wynter Melo who are both of Panamanian and West Indian ancestry. Born after 1970, both writers clearly identify as black yet this racial identification does not manifest in their literary repertoire. Short stories by Taylor and Wynter Melo interrogate black identity in twenty-first century Panama and provide a road map to racial consolidation and the forging of Afro-Panamanian identity and unity.
