Celebrating Afro-Latinidad

Afro-Latino Week is an annual celebration of the rich and vibrant culture that results from the blending of African and Latin influences. Through art, music, dance, and more, this program highlights the unique and beautiful ways the African diaspora is uniquely blended into today’s Latino culture.

The history of Afro-Latino Week dates back to 2018, when a group of community members in Cazateatro recognized the need for a celebration of Afro-Latino culture. They came together to plan and organize the first Afro-Latino Week, which has since become an annual tradition. In addition to honoring the unique and vibrant Afro-Latino culture, Afro-Latino Week also serves as a way to pay tribute to the important contributions of Afro-Latinos during Black History Month.
