Quote of the Day

"Afro-Mexicans in the U.S. need to also be recognized. People do not know enough about us. We exist in Guerrero, but we also exist in the U.S.—they cannot forget about us."—Reynas Salinas, a native of Cuanjinicuilapa, Mexico, and resident of Santa Ana, California, quoted in a terrific article by Walter Thompson-Hern├índez on the largely unseen lives of Afro-Mexicans in the United States.

Fascinating living history. Definitely a must-read.
