Carmen Amelia Robles-Black is Beautiful 20

Colonel Carmen Amelia Robles was an Afro-Mexican soldier in the Mexican Revolution 1910-1920. I could find very little on Colonel Robles except that she dressed like a man of the times and assumed a more masculine stature fighting alongside men as did many women during this time. The first place i saw information and a photo of her was through the Lati-Negros blog. This led me to other blogs such as "Beyond Black and White"and "Numero F". They put her birth at 1889 en Xochipala, Guerrero. She was a part of Emiliano Zapata's army and participated in many battles such as La Batalla de la hacienda de pozuelos.
