Join us for a special screening of Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico. The jamaica flower and tamarind are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In this short documentary, we'll meet five people in Mexico City as they explore the nation's African heritage, an identity that goes beyond the color of one's skin.
Following the documentary, Ebony Bailey, the film's cinematographer and director will join us for a live discussion.
This event is jointly organized by the Latinx Student Association, the Black Graduate Student Alliance, the W.E.B. Du Bois Society, the GSAS Student Center Intellectual and Cultural Fellows, the GSAS Student Center Food Literacy Fellows, the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies.
