Afro-Mexicans Tell Their Story

Few people in the US, even among Black and Latino/a antiracism colleagues, are aware that more than 90% of all Africans kidnapped and enslaved by European colonizers were brought to what is now Latin America. And not only to Brazil and the Caribbean, but throughout these vast lands. Including Mexico.

Así Somos: Afro Identities in the Coast is an excellent short documentary of Black or Afro-descendant Mexicans sharing perspectives of what is to be Black in Mexico.
