Capa Prieto Stories


Capá Prieto fictionalizes the Afro-Puerto Ricans experience from bondage to citizenship. Past and present are beautifully intertwined in order to expose a truthful, intense, and promising Puerto Rican negritud.

Capá Prieto astonishes, among other virtues, because of the fluidity of its historical imagination which traverses from a black rebellion in 1797 in colonial Puerto Rico through to a drama about a historian from the Universidad de Sevilla, who two hundred and ten years later, in the Spanish Archives, finds documentary evidence of said event. Capá Prieto is nurtured by novel inspiring human experience in the Antillean past and present.

Yvonne Denis Rosario, in combining extensive research and gifted imagination, has succeeded in creatively interweaving history and fiction in order to bring to the forefront the historically marginalized voices and experiences of Puerto Rico’s Afro-Caribbean communities. In transmitting these stories so carefully and artistically, the author highlights and explores some of the many silences that have characterized Latin America’s dominant historical and cultural traditions since the beginning of the colonial era. This work makes a truly significant contribution to the evolution of Puerto Rican, Caribbean and Latin American literary history.
