Rosa Clemente, a Ph.D. candidate at UMass Amherst’s W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies shared her thoughts on black identity in Latin America with The Huffington Post.  

Afro-Latino is not about being black and Latino, Afro-Latina means to be a black Latina/Latino hence why the term Afro-Latino came about in the late ’70s,” she said. “Since Latino is not a race, it’s really not even an ethnic group, it is false to say that folks are black and Latino, we are racially black and then many refer to their ethnicity. i.e Afro-Boricua, Afro-Dominican.
