Latino And African Identity Come Together In 'AfroLAtinidad' Exhibition
Los Angeles was founded by multiracial settlers of African, Indigenous, and Spanish descent, and that centuries-old combination of identities is being celebrated in the new "afroLAtinidad" exhibition at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in downtown L.A.
The installation is designed to look like a faux "Afro-Latinx" home, filled with objects on loan from local families. From dancing in the backyard, to a mix of culinary influences in the kitchen, the exhibit wants visitors to pay closer attention to an identity that's often overlooked.
