The ‘forgotten’ root of Mexican culture: AFRICA AC, EN CAMPAÑA POR HACER VISIBLE AL PUEBLO NEGRO

Posted: Monday, Feb 17th, 2014

WATSONVILLE — Referred to as the “third root” of Mexican culture, the Afro-Mexican community is often hidden from the public eye.

But a rising movement for constitutional recognition is gaining momentum, and to further that, a series of events will take place across the county starting Thursday to inform the public of this community and its traditions.

Titled “Black Mexico: The Forgotten Root,” Israel Reyes Larrea, founder of AFRICA A.C., and other members from Oaxaca Mexico, will share historical and current information about the Afro-Mexican communities of Costa Chica, Mexico
