Miriam Jiménez Román & Juan Flores: “The Afro-Latin@ Reader: History & Culture in the U.S.”

The Urban Studies Research Cluster presents:

Discussion with Miriam Jiménez Román & Juan Flores: The Afro-Latin@ Reader: History & Culture in the U.S.

For much of the past 500 years, Afro-Latinas/os have had to negotiate multi-dimensional expectations of shifting dominant ideologies and the realities of their everyday experiences. As Latinos and African Americans have been pitted against each other in a race for demographic supremacy, Afro-Latinas/os have emerged as a significant bridge across the social divide. Professors Román and Flores discuss their co-edited book, The Afro-Latin@ Reader (Duke, 2010).
