Black in Latin America
Mexico & Peru, the Black Grandma in the ClosetWebsite or Online Data - 2011
Henry Louis Gates Jr. travels to Mexico and Peru to discover the African influence on Latin America. He examines the shared legacy of colonialism and slavery in a region that imported ten times as many slaves as the United States, and kept them in bondage far longer. Gates finds that the people of African descent have had a massive influence on the history and culture of Latin America and the Caribbean, despite sometimes being forgotten or ignored.
