Offered Either Fall or Spring; Lecture hours:3
By the early 19th century nearly 6 million Africans were forcibly transported to Spanish and Portuguese “New World” territories. Despite outnumbering US Blacks 3:1, Afro-Latin Americans have received little scholarly attention until recently. This course explores the history and impact of the Afro-Latin American experience from slavery to the present. Crosslisted as AFST 155.
