APRIL 2011 Black in Latin America With Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Tue April 19th and 26th, May 3rd and 10th at 8 p.m.


Featured this month Black in Latin America Tue April 19th and 26th, May 3rd and 10th at 8 p.m. Learn more at thirteen.org/

Between 1502 and 1866, more than 11 million Africans were brought to the New World, but only 450,000 arrived in the United States. The rest were taken to the Caribbean and Latin America. Renowned Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. reveals this untold story and its lasting cultural impact in Black in Latin America, a new four-part series premiering this month on THIRTEEN. With the broadcast of African American Lives in 2006, Professor Gates made history as the first filmmaker to employ genealogy and genetic science to provide an understanding of African American history. In Black in Latin America, he visits Brazil, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Mexico, and Peru to discover how Latin Americans of African descent live, how their countries acknowledge— or deny—their African past, and how race and African ancestry influence the multicultural worlds of the Caribbean and Latin America. “Few of us realize how ‘black’ the cultures of South America actually are.

Since the sixteenth century, the black presence has been inextricably intertwined in the cultures and economies of the six countries we examine in the series,” said Professor Gates. “This series—the third in a trilogy—is a journey of discovery, in which we unveil these often hidden worlds that black people created in countries we don’t think of as black. How many of us realize that black saints are worshipped in these countries, and that the first black president of any country in the New World was not Barack Obama, it was Vicente Guerrero who was elected president of Mexico in 1829.” “We're particularly excited about this series because it breaks so much new ground,” said Stephen Segaller, Vice President of Content at WNET. “It serves the audience in two ways—bringing them material they won’t find anywhere else and presenting important stories about diverse communities in the Americas that will resonate with our own immensely diverse New York area audience.”

Funding for Black in Latin America is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Public Television Stations and Viewers Like You. Additional funding is provided by the Ford Foundation, Richard Gilder and Alphonse Fletcher.
