Probably the documentary over Afromexicans that I’ve liked the most. Its in Spanish but it talks about not just la Costa Chica (what most documentaries about Afromexicans focus on) but about African and West Indian immigrants AND Black Seminoles, something I hadn’t seen mentioned before. Its only 11 minutes long but the full documentary is supposed to be uploaded eventually.
Also its just nice to be able to share this with my mom, she’s from Durango, normally thought to be predominantly white or mestizo, but she herself is [visibly] afromestizo. I’ve read about Black Seminoles having been in Durango and Coahuila and its just nice to be able to share this with her when I know that despite facing discrimination and racism due to her hair and skin, no one ever spoke about black ancestry. Instead, it was attributed to the an indigenous (Tepehuano and Tarahumara) ancestor here or there, more specifically “Si pues tu mama esta haci de negra por que tu tia [insert diff name every time] era india..piel negra.. pera era india,” hmm.
