What is Afro-Latin America?
Afro-Latin American refers to African roots within Latin America.
This concept can refer to people, music, culture, cuisine, religion, arts and social class.
With an estimated total poluation of 550 million, nearly 100 million Latin Americans are of African descent.
In many countries within Latin America, the social view of African heritage varies. Within Brasil, a majority of the population is of African descent. In neighboring South American countries, this identity is less common.
Most commonly, people of African descent are referred to by their nationality: Afro-Cuban, Afro-Brasilian, Afro-Mexican.
