A Discussion on Afro-Latinidad
Please join us on February 25th at 5 PM as we explore the roots, history, culture, and evolution of Afro-Latinidad. We will discuss the Afrolatinx experience, including the challenges faced by the community on a daily basis. The discussion will dive into the concept of anti-blackness and colorism, which permeates Latin American culture. Our program will also address the manifestations of these challenges in health disparities. We will conclude with a panel discussion and questions from the audience.
