Eduardo Galeano

Eduardo Hughes Galeano (Spanish pronunciation: [eˈðwarðo ɣaleˈano]; 3 September 1940 – 13 April 2015) was a Uruguayan journalist, writer and novelist considered, among other things, "global soccer's pre-eminent man of letters" and "a literary giant of the Latin American left". Galeano's best-known works are Las venas abiertas de América Latina (Open Veins of Latin America, 1971) and Memoria del fuego (Memory of Fire Trilogy, 1982–6). "I'm a writer," the author once said of himself, ""obsessed with remembering, with remembering the past of America and above all that of Latin America, intimate land condemned to amnesia." Author Isabelle Allende, who said her copy of Galeano's book was one of the few items with which she fled Chile in 1973 after the military coup of Augusto Pinochet, called Open Veins of Latin America, "a mixture of meticulous detail, political conviction, poetic flair, and good storytelling."

Artículo destacado: Redescubre tu identidad latina con estos audiolibros


Es fundamental conservar la identidad cultural que poseemos, pues se trata de uno de los rasgos que nos identifican como individuos y que nos posicionan en el contexto familiar y social. Al migrar, tenemos el reto de integrarnos de la mejor manera posible en el nuevo país que nos acoge, pero sin por ello reprimir o erradicar nuestra forma de ser. Llevamos la identidad latinoamericana con nosotros mismos en nuestras tradiciones y costumbres.
