Speaking of African (North) Americans...

Here's an interesting post I ran across today about Afro-Mexicans:

As cultural anthropologist Dr. Bobby Vaughn said, “If you are like most people, you probably have never heard of Afro-Mexicans and are completely unaware that they exist.”

Just who are the Afro-Mexicans? They are the descendents of African slaves who were brought to Mexico as early as the start of the 16th century.
Interesting stuff! Hopefully, the documentary she mentions will become widely accessible.
