Blackness & Mexicanidad: Afro-descendancy and Mis/Representation in Mexican Popular Culture
Presented by:
Crystal Galván M.A.

Historically, Afro-Mexicans have been an invisible and marginalized population in México and around the globe but recent awareness has sparked interests in exploring Blackness and Mexicanidad, in particular, Black representations in Mexican popular culture. Some of these representations include the infamous El Negrito from La Lotería Mexicana, as well as other problematic images. Join Crystal Galván M.A., a recent graduate from the master’s program in Latin American and Latinx Studies from the University of Illinois at Chicago to learn about Mexico’s Black History and discuss the hidden messages behind El Negrito and other Lotería cards.
