Join the Yale African American Affinity Group, Yale Latino Networking Group, LGBTQ Affinity Group, and Working Women’s Network for a virtual screening of Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico. Following the documentary, Ebony Bailey, the film’s cinematographer and director will join us for a live discussion.

The jamaica flower and tamarind are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In Jamaica and Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico, we meet five people to explore African heritage in Mexico City, an identity that goes beyond the color of one’s skin.
