For nine years Renzo Devia, @afrolatinotv, and I have waited for this moment–Afrolatinos La Historia Que Nunca Nos Contaron will screen at the HBO Latino Film Festival. We are finally getting this story closer to where it has always been destined to be. Our vision and intention for Afrolatinos has been and is to ensure that the rich history of our people be celebrated across the diaspora, in classrooms, included in the textbooks and spoken about in our homes.
You are cordially invited to join us for what will be an historic event for AFROLATINOS! We are going to the HBO Latino Film Festival family!
We are so proud to have the stories of our ancestors celebrated in this way. GET YOUR TICKETS THEY WILL SELL OUT!

AFROLATINOS: THE UNTAUGHT STORY is the story of the estimated 150 million Afrodescendants dispersed throughout Latin America who have been excluded from historical narratives, literature and academia. With the United Nations declaring 2015-2024, the International Decade of People of African Descent, including Latinos in the discourse is revolutionary and important. Afrolatinos takes you on a journey throughout Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations as we learn about their respective histories, religions, music, dance and numerous contributions. We hope this documentary will empower Afrolatinos, start a dialogue, create awareness, promote change and help give voice to a community that has been silenced and historically marginalized.
