Gaspar Yanga - Leader of a Slave Rebellion in Mexico

Gaspar Yanga - Leader of a Slave Rebellion in Mexico | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"Gaspar Yanga—often simply Yanga or Nyanga—was a leader of a slave rebellion in Mexico during the early period of Spanish colonial rule. Said to be of the Bran people[1] and member of the royal family of Gabon,[2] Yanga came to be the head of a band of revolting slaves near Veracruz around 1570.[3] Escaping to the difficult terrain of the highlands, he and his people built a small maroon colony, or palenque.[3] For more than 30 years it grew, partially surviving by capturing caravans bringing goods to Veracruz. However, in 1609 the Spanish colonial government decided to undertake a campaign itself to regain control of the territory.[3]"

Afrolatinos - México

Afrolatinos - México | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"Is there such a thing as black Mexicans? Who are Afro-Mexicans? What are the contributions of African’s to present day Mexico?

 

These were just some of the questions the team hoped to have answered during their trip to Mexico. They learned about many theories, public and expert opinions and untaught stories that left them to decipher and search for the truth. In the documentary "Afrolatinos" the aim is to show the face of Afro-Mexican’s and share with you the history of how and when they arrived to Mexico."

Black at Stuyvesant High — One Girl’s Experience

Black at Stuyvesant High — One Girl’s Experience | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"...it was not uncommon to find students who had never heard about the specialized high school exam; or to meet students who had signed up for the exam, but had never thought of taking a practice test or prep course — something common among white and Asian students; or to have guidance counselors tell him that Stuyvesant “isn’t for our kids.”

 

RUDI, who lives in the Wakefield section of the Bronx, attended sixth and seventh grades in Jamaica, and eighth grade in Mount Vernon, a Westchester County suburb. Her father, Donovan Miller, a director of accounting at Bronx Community College, recalled asking a colleague for advice about enrolling Rudi, the youngest of his three children, in “the best New York City high school.” The colleague advised Mr. Miller that he had to sign her up for the specialized high school exam and, if he wanted to improve her odds, to have her take some kind of test preparation program."

The Fluid Symbol of Mixed Race
