    A short 3 min clip on what most of us already knew. What I did not know personally, is that they had a centre for it down there. Am glad to see this. Am actually even glader to see that there is a white puerto rican (with Afrikan roots, no dobut) presenting this thing.

    If it was a white american I would've frowned, but this time it made me feel... uhm... positive. A smart white acknowledging us through good work.

    Enjoy.

    Thank you for this.

    It's always a pleasure to see our history and influence preserved and acknowledged.

    Each one/teach one...

    Do plant and spread them seeds:

    One day we will reap the harvest!

    Then by the fruit of their labors etc. will will rejoin the rest of human race as people worthy of our place as equals among them too...

    Let Us Be Grateful And Humble Because Of What We Do Have-!

    Let us also be grateful and humbled by what others of the disapora have been able to accomplish in spite of what they didn't or don't!

    Now go use those search engines to find out more about other people of african descent in the Americas (than I might have the time etc. to even read about)...
