Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Saw promos for Zoe Saldana's new movie Colombiana. Curious to know the premise of this movie. Hard to tell in the commercial, but excited to see Zoe re-acculterating to her Latina roots in a role clearly defined as Afro-Colombiana.  Zoe is often relegated to roles intended for African Americans only and we have rarely seen her engaged in a Latina identity, something sad for all the Afro-Cubanas, Colombianas, Dominicanas and other women waiting for this kind of exposure.  I fear that the story will hitch to some sort of drug trade plotline, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt for now. Apparently, she's doing Spanish language interviews for this one. Way to go Zoe!
