Did you know?


Queen Calafia

Calafia is a fictional warrior queen who ruled over a kingdom of Black women living on the mythical Island of California. The character of Queen Calafia was created by Spanish writer Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo who first introduced her in his popular novel entitled Las sergas de Esplandián (The Adventures of Esplandián), written around 1500.

Calafia, also called Califia, has been depicted as the Spirit of California, and has been the subject of modern-day sculpture, paintings, stories and films; she often figures in the myth of California's origin, symbolizing an untamed and bountiful land prior to European settlement.

I've always heard of this but I never took the time to look into it

If you go to Google Books and search "Literature of California", pg 76 talks about the "Queen of California"

Being a Black female from California, I find this so ironic lol

For the real land of California is anything but a haven for Black women
