In case you missed Parts 1-3 they are posted here.  All are around 50 minutes long.  Enjoy.  We also added our commentary under the vids.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. uncovers Latin America's African roots in this four-part series. Black in Latin America is a quest to discover how Africa and Europe combined to create the vibrant cultures of Latin America, with a rich legacy of thoughtful, articulate subjects whose stories are astonishingly moving and irresistibly compelling.

Full Episode: Brazil: A Racial Paradise?   In Brazil, Professor Gates delves behind the façade of Carnival to discover how this ‘rainbow nation’ is waking up to its legacy as the world’s largest slave economy.  

We live in Salvador da Bahia in Brazil.  That show was pretty on point.  I get tired of hearing people who have never even been here talk like experts about how Brazilians consider themselves all these different
colors.  That's not completely true.  Here in Bahia, everyone is referred to as "Negro or Negra".  Whether they look black or not they at least know to acknowledge the Afro Brazilian contribution to society. To put that in proper perspective, that's like walking around in your city or town and everyone is comfortable calling themselves black or nigga, African Americcan, Moor, or whatever term you are comfortable with (don't get caught up in the word).

Full Episode: Cuba: The Next Revolution In Black in Latin America's second episode, Professor Gates explores race and identity in Cuba.

Full Episode: Haiti & the Dominican Republic: An Island Divided The first episode of the Black in Latin America series explores race and identity in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Half of my Family is Haitian and the Other Half is Puerto Rican. If you put them all in a room together in there natural state they look like the same people.  On both sides I have dark skinned and light skinned family members.  I have never felt like I was mixed race.  Just mix cultured.  And Now that I am Grown I see our people are all over the planet, separated by language and culture but we are all the same people Aboriginal to the land. These videos really help to show how white supremacy  plagued our people with hatred for each other.  But we are Waking up as a people and the growth of Black Pride and Unity is Rising all over the world and regardless of what has happened the last shall be first.  Peace!
