#TALKINGAFROLATINO CHAT SERIES
CCCADI’s #TalkingAfroLatino Chat Series consisted of 4 conversation series conducted via Twitter running from September 24, 2015 to October 15, 2015. As an integral part of celebrating Latino Heritage Month at CCCADI, these online talks invited Afrolatinas and Afrolatinos from different backgrounds to engage in conversations about Afrodescendants in the Latin American Community. Each of the online talks was co-hosted by a guest whose perspective and work promotes Afrolatinidad.
