De la Misma Raíz: From the Same Root
February 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PST
Presenter: Sherehe Hollins
“De la Misma Raíz: From the Same Root” shines light upon Africa’s legacy in Mexico by discussing the pre-Columbian African presence in America, Africa’s influence in Spain, colonialism in New Spain and its effects on the formation of a Mexican identity. The purpose of the workshop is to share a relevant and oftentimes obscured part of history, in order to strengthen and unify African American and Chicanx communities. The goal of the workshop is to help diverse ethnic groups understand the interconnection between their collective history, culture and ancestry.
