Our Migrant Souls is a letter to anyone who identifies with latinidad living in the United States. With reassurance and validation, Tobar urges us to break away from constantly questioning our identities. Written with resentment, mourning, and love, he defines what it means to be Latino, a term that bears hardships, but calls us to reclaim it, without the constant narrative of our oppressors. I hold Héctor Tobar and this book very dearly and tenderly.
