Happy New Year! ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!

Afro-Latinos in Latin America, Caribbean is the focus of this travel show

“People don’t know that there are Black people in Uruguay” or that Blacks built the Costa Rican railroad, says Kim Haas.

By Patricia Guadalupe

There are a slew of travel shows on television, but nothing quite like the one headed up by Philadelphia native Kim Haas. A media veteran with more than 20 years in the business — including a stint at a Telemundo affiliate in Philadelphia — Haas is not necessarily focusing on the locales or the foods of far-flung exotic places, but more on a specific segment of the population that she says gets overlooked time and time again. “Afro-Latino Travels With Kim Haas” celebrates the contributions of African descendants in the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.

“Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas” airs Wednesday, December 23, on CreateTV

Quince Duncan is a true trailblazer! He’s one of Costa Rica’s most celebrated authors and the first Costa Rican to write about the Afro-Costa Rican experience. Meet him on Wednesday’s episode of “Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas.”

Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas, a new PBS travel series, premieres with a two-part special featuring Afro-Costa Rican culture this September 2020 on public television stations nationwide in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This series celebrates and honors the historical and cultural contributions of Latin America’s African descendants, hosted by trilingual, Black female traveler and Executive Producer, Kim Haas.

“We are introducing public television viewers to Afro-Latinos and their profound legacy in the Americas through history, culture, cuisine, art, dance, music, environmental conservation, literature, sports, and festivals,” says Haas.

Afro-Latino Travels is about Black joy, pride and resilience despite centuries of oppression and under-representation. The series features Afro-Latinos who will inspire viewers with hope and optimism.”

No other travel TV series showcases solely the Afro-Latino communities throughout Latin America and their rich and diverse legacy of creating vibrant cultures in the Americas.  African descendants have and continue to leave an indelible imprint on mainstream Latino culture from countries as diverse as Andean Peru to tropical Cuba, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.  

The Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas two-part special featuring Costa Rica will be available on public television stations across the United States starting September 12, 2020 – check local listings for broadcast dates and times. Underwriting for the program has been provided in part by the Ford Foundation and in-kind support provided by the Costa Rica Tourism Board.
