I REALLY enjoyed the trailer, & was just talking about this subject as I watched the ALMA awards last week. It’s disheartening that w/the millions of Afro-Latinos there are in the world, there isn’t much of a media presence. But far beyond that the film explores richly African communities all over Latin America. I can’t wait to see it!! Check out the incredible research that went into the Afro-Latino website, as well as the trailers for the move in both English & Spanish.

From their site:

Afrolatinos “The Untaught Story” is a documentary television series independently produced by Creador Pictures, LLC. The program will illustrate history and celebrate the rich culture of people in Latin America of African descent. From the story of how and when slaves came to Central and South America to identity issues that still exist in the Hispanic community today. There are an estimated 200 million Afro-descendants in Latin America but the majority of them do not have political or economic power. This documentary takes you on a journey to meet Afrolatinos throughout Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations and an exploration and appreciation of their culture. It will also teach the uninformed and hopefully initiate social change throughout Latin America.
