#AFROLATINASTOKNOW ~ #1: Marta Moreno Vega

For the month of October I will be sharing my top thirty-one #afrolatinastoknow today I honor: #1 Dr. Marta Moreno Vega. I met Dr. Vega in 2007, when I interviewed for my first published article. The article that was the seed to my work on the #afrolatinosfilm. Back then the #cccadi was in Columbus Circle. Her dedication, passion and drive has secured a new location in East Harlem, where it absolutely belongs. Marta Vega means so much to this community, but to me I will always see her at one of the mothers of the #afrolatinomovement. @afrolatinostv

She established the center in 1976, inspired by a vision to create an international organization to promote and link communities of African Descent. Her work ensures that the contributions of African and African descendants are integral to the lives of civil society in the Americas.
