Black in Latin America -- Coming Soon to a PBS Station Near You!

Meltingpot Readers,

How psyched is my little Kinky Gazpacho heart to see this new PBS documentary, Black in Latin America. It's another Skip Gates production where the great Harvard professor takes audiences on a trip through Latin America, including Haiti and the Dominican Republic in order to highlight and explore the African influence in those countries. Just watching the preview, I learned so much. But don't take my word for it, check out the video trailer below and then tune in to your local PBS stations on April 19.

Watch the full episode. See more Black in Latin America.

I have been very interested in the afro Colombian experience recently. Have you heard of ChocQuibTown? If not, CHECK THEM OUT!!!!

I also have "Blackness and Race Mixture: The Dynamics of Racial Identity in Colombia" on my summer reading list.

There is a día de afrocolombianidad as well.

I cannot wait to watch "Black in Latin America".

I love my beautiful biracial now bicultural daughter!
