Event Description:

Over 12 million Africans, three times more than Europeans or Asians, came to the Americas during the Atlantic slave trade. Together with the indigenous people, Africans and Afrodescendientes were the majority population across Latin America for nearly 400 years. In some places, they still are. Africa's cultural imprint on Latin America is everywhere: in music, dance, religion, medicine, food, art and fashion. Join us in celebrating the African roots of Latin America, from Patagonia to Mesoamerica, the Andes and Amazonia to the Caribbean.
