AFROLATINOS - AN UNTAUGHT HISTORY is the story of the estimated 150 million people of African descent living throughout Latin America who have been generally excluded from historical narratives, literature and academia. AFROLATINOS, produced by Creador Pictures, takes viewers on a journey through Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations as well as Haiti, featuring the rich cultures and many contributions of Afro-descendants in the Caribbean, Central and South America, including their history, languages, religions, music and dance, while also exploring questions of identity and racial discrimination. The documentary aims to help empower people of African descent, start a dialogue, create awareness, promote change and help give voice to a large community who has been historically marginalized.
