Part IV addresses inequality in Colombia, as it is experienced along the fissures of class, race, and gender. A famous petition carried to the king of Spain by a sixteenth-century indigenous nobleman, the cacique de Turmequé, is translated here. Also included are writings by the social justice activists who remapped Colombian politics in the 1920s and 1930s, including the socialist-feminist María Cano and the self-taught indigenous intellectual Quintín Lame. Also translated here are extracts from a short story by the writer Marvel Moreno and the lyrics of a rap song aimed at exposing the exploitative nature of military conscription in Colombia.
