    Thank you, thank you, gracias! I just found your site in my attempt to find material to teach my high school Spanish students during Black History Month. What a gold mine I have found, and I am so excited to create a curriculum unit on the African influences in our Latino culture – keeping it both relevant and current for them with these great articles. I am especially interested in showing the clip on the AfroUruguayans and their fight for recognition in their country, I cannot wait for the discussions that will ensue after the clip and the comparisons the kids will have to make to our own plight in the US. Gracias!!!!

    Given the recent presidential action to begin normalizing relations, I think if would be very interesting if someone would author an article on the impact of the US Embargo of Cuba on the afrocubanos. I believe they have been disproportionately harmed, because the lack of a prosperous exiled community who can pour US dollars into their neighborhoods and lives, among other reasons. Maybe you could do an interview with Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. who, as you know, is a subject matter expert on the topic and get his views on how normalization would impact our communities there.

    Just food for thought. Hope all is well. Looking forward to more great content.

    Saludos from Minnesota…yes, there are Puerto Ricans here in the Twin Cities. We are MinneRicans. I’m a writer on assignment to create a publication during the UN’s declaration of International Decade of People of African Descent Jan 2014-Dec 2023. I’m working on a special edition magazine to be released during Hispanic Heritage Month 2017, right around the corner…yikes! Besides the obvious, celebrating Afro-Latinos…the goal is to have an annual commemorative magazine for the purposes of documenting stories to incorporate into local academic standards for K-12. Needless to say, we are looking for advertisers (to cover the issue) and more important … content. Pictures, illustrations etc. etc. If you’re nterested in helping out a Boricua de NYC by way of Neillsville, WI who ended up in St, Paul, MN. dreaming of Jayuja, document our history dejame saber y pa lante entonces/carmen
