Latin America and the Caribbean have the largest concentration of people with African ancestry outside Africa &ndash\;up to 70 percent of the population is some countries. The region imported more than ten times as many slaves as the United States\, and kept them in bondage far longer. As Professor Gates travels to these varied countries\, he celebrates the massive influences millions of people of African descent had on the history and culture of Latin America and the Caribbean\, and considers why and how their contribution is often forgotten or ignored.\n\n\n\n \;\n\n\n\n \;\n\n SUMMARY:Black History Month":" Documentary Haiti and Dominican Republic":" An Island Divided PRIORITY:3 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
