OKUS Presents Identidad Re-imagined: A documentary screening and discussion with filmmaker Dash Harris.
What does it mean to be Black in America? What does it mean to be Latino/a? What does it mean to be both? With these questions in mind, FOKUS presents an exclusive screening of Negro: A Docu-Series about Latino Identity and discussion with the series creator and director Dash Harris.
The docu-series explores the history and presents attitudes of race, color, self-identification, and social interaction among Latinos from Latinos themselves.
This dynamic event will demonstrate the diversity of the Black experience and to challenge how we think about identity.
For more information contact Jordan Kifer <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Event will be held 3/14 in 3512 Haven Hall, 3:30pm-4:00pm.
Negro: Examining Color in Latin America
THIS VIDEO IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL
Color and African-descendant identity is examined in Latin America. How are race and color viewed? What connections do African-descendants and in Latin America share with African-descendants in the U.S.? Latinos and Afro-Americans share their stories.
The one-drop rule of hypodescent only existed in the USA, not in Latin America, thus a sweeping categorization of color and race does not and did not exist in the way it does in the USA.
Interviewees: I met Rosalba while walking around the city in Cali, Colombia. Her friend Holmes, saw me taking pictures and video and upon passing the cafe, beckoned me over to inquire on why (aka be nosy). I told them about the series and Rosalba immediately asked me to interview her.
I met Giovanni Cordoba in Quibdo. Cidaly, also a resident of Quibdo, whom I met through her friend Melissa from Cali, received me when I arrived and introduced us.
