A presentation by Juan Flores and Miriam Jimenez RomanJuan Flores & Miriam Jimenez Roman Talk

The authors will provide an overview of the history of Afro-Latinos/Latinas in the United States and discuss the transnational perspectives linking African descendant communities throughout the hemisphere. Of special interest is the potential role of Black Latin@s in bridging Latin@ and African American struggles for equality and justice, and the implications of this experience for our understanding of race in the current, purportedly “post-racial” context, where the two communities are regarded as mutually exclusive and inherently adversarial.
