    Black in Latin America eBook ë Black in PDF/EPUB ² black ebok, latin download, america mobile, Black in free, Black in Latin America KindleI give Professor Gates credit on this one Henry Gates travelled to six countries to find out how the people feel about and embrace blackness and their African heritage The essential uestion was what does it mean to be black in these countries And who is considered black The six countries were Brazil Mexico Peru Dominican Republic Haiti and Cuba Each of these countries have an abundance of categories for color and skin tone Anywhere from 12 to a staggering 134 in Brazil In terms of pride of African roots after reading the book I would rank them thusly on the scale of African consciousness1 Haiti as the worlds' first Black republic this shoud be obvious2 Brazil with the largest number of Africans outside of Africa no surprise here3 Peru

    Black in Latin America eBook ë Black in PDF/EPUB ² black ebok, latin download, america mobile, Black in free, Black in Latin America KindleJust heard part of an interview with Henry Louis Gates Jr on Fresh Air and this book sounds fascinating you know that of the 112 million African slaves that got off ships in the Americas fewer than 500000 came to what is now the US All the rest went to the Caribbean and Latin America Or that in Brazil where over 4 million slaves ended up there are 134 categories of blackness to describe someone of African descentThese figures grabbed me and make me want to read this book
