American Heritage Series: Afro-Mexico
This is the first installment dealing with the African diaspora. The African presence in Mexico is rarely recognized or wildly known. Two hundred years before the United States abolished slavery; a community of free Blacks was established in the 1600s in what is now Veracruz. As a result, issues of nationalism, color and race are integral to the discussion of what it means to be Mexican. Join the CD Forum and panel of experts as we discuss historical and contemporary issues of Afromestizo identity.
