"Ironically, writes Silvio Torres-Saillant, Simon Bolivar’s desideratum of a unified Latin American nation and the idea upheld by Eugenio Maria de Hostos of an Antillean federation find in us a strange kind of fulfillment. We have come to articulate a collective identity, no in our native homelands, as Bolivar and Hostos had dreamed, but within the insecure space of the diaspora."
