[Autom. eng. transl.] The literary production that is framed in the Afro-descendant discourse has gained attention in the Central American and Caribbean region, forming a set of productions that is increasingly significant, as a result of the political and cultural importance that the defense of Afro-descendant rights has gained after from the Durban conference (2001). The role of poets and writers who write from Afro-descendants or who write with an Afro-descendant perspective is a testimony of great value, since their production puts on the scene a form of intersectional exclusion, in which being a woman and being an Afro-descendant woman. This study aims to reflect on the links that the poetry of the Afro-Costa Rican Shirley Campbell Barr maintains with ‘Afro-descendants’ as an analytical framework that has been imposed in the literary field in recent decades. In particular, our objective will be to analyze what themes are developed in his poetry and, at the same time, take into consideration the way in which Campbell Barr models and treats the claims that are produced from the Afro-descendant cultural identity in the poetic text.
