Veteran community activist and present Chair of the Commission on Latino Community Development, Roland Roebuck, put it succinctly when he said Latinos must; "understand and appreciate the political strategy of forming and nurturing 'alliances'… engaging with other ethnic sectors… and providing badly needed transparent leadership for the overall benefit of the DC community."

Above all for the political maturation of the Hispanic community in DC to bloom there has to be unity of purpose and intent and powerful leadership willing to place the collective good above personal ambition and gain. What is needed is leadership that listens, is comfortable with compromises and transparent; leaders who build on common themes and mobilize the base. Latinos must enunciate a vision of what they see for the future of our city/state and how that fits into the larger picture of what the District will look like over the next decades and how they can make that a better destiny for all.
My appreciation to Jose Gutierrez, Roland Roebuck and Franklin Garcia for their help with this story.

"Afro Latinos have a right to celebrate Black History Month," said Roland Roebuck, 66, a D.C. government retiree who advises the Afro Latino Alliance in Washington, D.C.

Roebuck said an "invisibility" exists, which often keeps Afro Latinos "out of the mix."
Born in New York and raised in Puerto Rico, Roebuck said when he first moved to Washington in the early 1970s, after serving in the U.S. Air Force, he was told by African Americans, "you're not a full-time brother."
"The African American community may find it strange, but the only difference between us is the language, and the geography. It's about where the slave ships landed," Roebuck said.
