Sheltering Liberation: A Short History of Maroon Settlements

  • Whatsapp

We start a new series exploring the Maroon presence in Latin America. Today we examine Maroons in Panama and Colombia. A new bill granting Afro-Mexicans legal recognition in the Mexican constitution is being debated. What are the implications of this bill for Afro­Mexicans? The Global African host Bill Fletcher looks at these issues with Dr. Sheila Walker, Executive Director at AfroDiaspora Inc, Dr. Msomi Moor, Professor at University of the District of Columbia, and Walter Thompson­Hernandez, researcher at the Center for Immigrant Integration at the University of Southern California. teleSUR
