Can an autobiographical tale tell the personal stories of many? This is what Rubén H. Bermúdez achieves through the pages of the photo book And you, why are you black? where, starting from an investigation into the origins of black slavery in Spain, the author constructs an autobiographical tale that acts as a political essay, rescuing his memory captured in the images, conversations and symbols that marked his life and thus narrates the everyday and the extraordinary of a society seen from a black perspective.
