artikle just watched the movie trailer below of a documentary series called AfroLatinos: La Historia Que Nunca Nos Contaron (AfroLatinos: The Untaught Story.)
To much of the world these people remain invisible, and in all of the countries where AfroLatinos landed years ago during the Atlantic slave trade, their lives remain impoverished, marginalized and in the case of Mexico NOT even recognized as citizens and kept out of the national census.
I am so happy to see Alicia Anabel Santos and Renzo Devia investing their lives and time into a project so incredibly important to the African diaspora.
A world where 150 million AfroLatinos and 44 million plus Black Americans added to the billion plus Africans in Africa and nearly 10 million in Europe come together for cultural and economic development.
That is the world I envision. So again, much love to Ms. Santos and Mr. Devia for shining a light on such a culturally enriched peoples.
