Film Showing: Jamaica & Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico

Oct 2021
27

4:15 pm - 7:00 pm
McCormick Auditorium

Join us for a screening and discussion of Ebony Bailey's film Jamaica & Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico. The showing will be followed by a discussion with the Director Ebony Bailey.

The jamaica flower and tamarind are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In Jamaica and Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico, we meet five people to explore African heritage in Mexico City, an identity that goes beyond the color of one's skin.

This event is sponsored by Latin American and Latinx Studies.
