African-descended populations in Latin America total over 150 million and nearly one quarter of the 57 million Latinos in the U.S. identify as Afro-Latino. This symposium highlights the range of sources – archival, literary, oral, digital, and visual – that researchers engage to analyze historical and contemporary diasporic experiences of Afro-Latin Americans and Afro-Latinos.
