Melissa is an Afro-indigenous autonomous feminist, poet, and writer. She is on tour with Karla Lara, who voices resistence through song and writing. Both Karla and Melissa will perform stories from Melissa’s book *13 Colors of Honduran Resistance * about women resisting brutal repression and finding unyielding hope. The theatrical performance is dedicated to Berta’s legacy.
