Afro-Latino Initiative

We have always had a “Generation Mix” but, on college/university campuses today, the mix of African-descended, Latino, Asian, and Native Americans at Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) is growing often without the knowledge base of each group, much less their historical connections. Though academic programs may address these issues, the ABCC feels that culture centers can play a distinctive role in such literacies. We have launched an Afro-Latino initiative, given the large numbers of Blacks and Latinos on most campuses and in the wider society. We believe that an adequate knowledge base of both ethnic groups is essential to authentic integration.

All institutions that become ABCC institutional members for the 2016-2017 fiscal year will get access to our searchable, expanding catalog of almost 200 books on Blacks in Latin America, including Brazil, Cuba and Mexico, as well as Blacks and Latinos in the U.S. We regularly update this catalog with books and articles that inspire discussions and encourage your campus community to learn more about the connections among ethnic groups. Become an ABCC institutional member to access books and articles in the following subject areas:
