Title

Mark Palacio: Afro-Latinos in Nicaragua and Belize

Description

AAAS and Latin American Studies programs invited Mark Palacio to speak Afro-Latinos communities in Nicaragua and Belize on April 19, 2016. While the term Afro-Latin was coined in the late 70’s, it has gained popularity over years and refers to Latina Americans of primarily African ancestry. Palacio’s talk focused specifically on Garifuna culture; a black community found in both countries. Interwoven with Palacio’s personal stories/experiences, the culture’s history, values, practices, and contemporary issued were touched on in this most enjoyable lecture. This event was held in the Bear’s Den.
