Lunch and Learn: Latin Sounds of the African Diaspora
Latino Arts Inc. is proud to celebrate Black History Month by diving deep into the roots of the many Latin rhythms born out of the African diaspora. Out of the tragic history of colonization and slavery the resilience of culture and human spirit has endured and persevered though music and dance traditions. Join us for an in-depth exploration of rhythm and movement and explore our Afro-Latino heritage as we celebrate musical roots that were born and continue to be part of the African Diaspora.
