Black History Month: Afro-Latinos In The USA

Los Angeles, CA -

In observance of Black History Month, we focus on Afro-Latinos or Black Latinos in the U.S.A. Dodger star outfielder Yasiel Puig is a prominent example of Black Latinos who are the descendants of African slaves that landed in Latin America instead of the American South.  Because of their cultural differences, Afro-Americans oftentimes find themselves isolated in the U.S., instead of being part of the melting pot.

Guests are Juanita Palacios-Sims and Melissa Shephard from the International Society of Black Latinos, headquartered here in Los Angeles.  The website is www.blacklatinos.org.

    Of all the world's religions, Buddhism is one of the most mysterious and most intriguing to many Americans.
