  1. Thanks RP – I can’t figure out if it has already aired somewhere or been released on video/dvd yet. Looks good, another one for the list of things I want to see!

  2. In my father’s family no one ever mentioned that our matriarch (my grandmother) was black. She was from Guanajuato, Mexico. I guess it just wasn’t appropriate to wonder(somehow)—but among us (cousins) we did refer to it. I am very curious about our roots and someday would like to look into the slave ship records and the possibility of Guanajuato having been a part of that trade.

  3. here’s the site for the film http://www.afrolatinos.tv/
    hope they post air dates soon.

    My close friend found out a couple of years ago that his abuelita was black and it was never discussed because it was considered taboo.

    I hope this documentary is done well and gets mad airtime. I think its very important to shed some light on our true roots. This perpetual black/brown beef is getting effin old.

  4. the whole hyphen American

    in Mexico, you are just Mexican be you blonde, red, black, kinky, straight hair lo que sea.
