This concluding chapter argues that Julia de Burgos challenged the early twentieth-century dehumanization of modernity with a fixation with authenticity and the cult of personality. In this way, she allowed others to identify with her work and to construct themselves through the process of identification and differentiation. Indeed, at a time when the mainstream media continues to racialize Latino/as toward whiteness and vacate the concept of Latinidad of its political possibilities, poets, writers, activists, musicians, artists, and playwrights call on the memory and legacy of Julia de Burgos to affirm the resilience of communities, connect to place, and imagine new possibilities.
