African Presence in Mexico ~ May 9
Date: Tuesday, 5 May 2009, 3:14 pm
For nearly 500 years the existence and influence of the African descendants in Mexico have been overlooked. The African Presence in México: Yanga to the Present traces how Africans---less than two per cent of colonial Mexico's (1521-1810) opulation---significantly enriched Mexican culture through their art, music, language, cuisine, and dance.
