This is a poster of the play No Es Pais Para Negras [No Country for Black Women] by Silvia Albert Sopale, that was performed in Oviedo, Spain, in 2016.

It is one of the first plays written and staged by a black woman in Spain. Born in San Sebastián from Nigerian and Ecuatorial Guinean descent, Sopale gives voice to the Afro-Spaniard community in her play. She is determined to open a space for black women artists in Spain and to make black female authorship visible.
