I love seeing my Haitian 🇭🇹 sisters identify as Afro-Latinas and seeing this article earlier this week was so heartwarming. If you’ve been following this page since the beginning you know how I feel about this subject. I’m glad that @haitiharlem was able to put this out there. Check out the article on @fiercebymitu ! ______________________ #latinamerica #latinamericanhistory #haitienne #haitian #haiti #blatina #afrolatina #afrolatino #afrolatinx #blacklatina #blacklatino #blacklatinx #africandiaspora #knowyourroots #blackgirlmagic #loveyourself #latinx #melanin #latinabeauty #caribbean #westindies #history #blackbeauty #iamlatina #unapologeticallyblack #beautifulineveryshade #morena #negra #50shadesoflatino #50shadesofblack

Por fin termineeeee, todo esto es la introducción y el capítulo 1 de: "El saqueo cultural de América Latina", es uno de esos libros que me alegro de que me lo hayan dado para leer en la u porque no creo que lo hubiese leído si no fuera obligatorio, pero me gustó mucho. Habla del periodo de "descubrimiento y conquista" desde el punto de vista de los pueblos indígenas, como la matanza duró siglos, como destruyeron la cultura, la religión y el arte de nuestros antepasados. Aveces se torna un poco crudo el relato, pero son cosas importantes que debemos saber porque forman parte de nuestra historia. #Studygram #Saqueocultural #LatinAmericanHistory #Historiadellibroylasbibliotecas

Buenos Aires , #Argentina. Circa: the near not so recent past. We were in one of the libraries Borges ran. I joked with Jorge about my ability to write. He claimed I got my style from him. I told him he couldn’t see me— in other words he couldn’t match my skill— and a greater quiet took over the library. One of the librarians, a small Chilean woman who was recently engaged and mumbled when she spoke, dropped some books. Some students from the university had been overhearing our dialogue and stared at Borges, waiting for his response. I realized my comment could be interpreted as offensive until Jorge said, “But I can feel you.” And I sighed and the new silence that took over the library lightened and the old silence eventually returned. It turned out the #Chilean woman wasn’t really Chilean, but an informer for the #Perón regime. Years later Borges would lose his position of head librarian and end up at a meat shop. Sometimes I lose sleep, like tonight, wondering if I had something to do with it. I can’t remember if we spoke badly about Perón. I just can’t remember. And then I think about the difference in silences. There’s the absence of sound and then there’s the absence of sound. How much deliberate listening is required to capture the nuances in silences. Last I spoke to #Borges he said the ability to listen in this era— he actually used the word zeitgeist— he said the ability to deliberately and skillfully listen now and day is reserved for the blind. ||| #LatinAmericanHistory ||| #Latinx ||| #BuenosAires ||| #JorgeLuisBorges ||| #Libraries ||| #Peronismo ||| #JuanDomingoPeron ||| #LatinAmerica ||| #dictatorship

Concilio, or the Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations of Philadelphia Inc., was founded in 1962 by a group of Latino leaders who were concerned about the social problems facing the growing Latino community of Philadelphia. As a federation of various Latino fraternal and social organizations, Concilio served as a liaison between the Spanish-speaking community and the rest of the city, and was the first organization specifically founded to address Latino community development. Concilio confronted issues such as discrimination, poor housing, inadequate city services and lack of bilingual education, and sought to establish Latino representation in city agencies and school administrations. In addition to cultural events, Concilio continues to advocate for Philadelphia's diverse Latino community and provide access to health, employment and educational services.

The short-lived republic of Gran Colombia (1819-30) had a flag of yellow, blue, and red horizontal stripes.

The architecture in Peru’s capital Lima takes you through all the various cultural and politico-ideological eras of the last 500 years of South American history. In the 1960ies, the government of Peru was toppled by a military coup led by general Juan Velasco whose military junta amidst Chile’s Pinochet and Argentina’s Perón was such a rare thing as a leftist military dictatorship in South America - introducing an agrarian reform and the nationalisation of natural resources. The Sheraton Hotel in Lima, which I came across today, surely is at least an aesthetic reminder of this “banana republic”-like epoch.

HISPANIC HISTORY IS USA HISTORY = establishing a distinction is not only futile, it’s foolish. Ignorance of our commonalities leads to #familyseparation and artificial enmities. Honored to have been part (albeit small) of reconstructing Florida’s early history. ************ 🌸🌼🌹🌻🌺. “‘An Account of the Martyrs in the Provinces of La Florida’ (Relación d Los mártires que ha habido en las Provincias de La Florida, c. 1619), written by the Peruvian Franciscan Luis Jerónimo de Oré (1554-1630), makes several new claims on our understanding of the US historical record... In representing La Florida, Oré describes the interaction between indigenous populations and Franciscan friars. He offers documentation on people-to-people encounters, which has been lacking, as military and settler accounts have concentrated more on land possession. Traditionally, New England and Plain Indian cultures have represented the US past, and Florida has been a footnote on Mexican histories. Both English- and Spanish-language historians have tended to ignore the area’s early record: they have often failed to appreciate the significance of Europe’s struggles played out in that vastness. Fought over by Spain, France, and England, the are manifests the international politics behind those countries’ economic jealousies and claim disputes” (Introduction 1-2). * Follow me on the Cronista de Indias YouTube Channel for more original research, free college courses and way more Latin American History than you ever get out of student debt. * #luisjeronimodeore #floridahistory #hispanichistory #latinamericanhistory #colonialamerica #laflorida #florida #lafloridadelinca #doepichit #elpueblounido #sisepuede #cronistadeindias #accountofthemartyrs #relaciondelosmartires #franciscanos #franciscanosconcojones #missionaries #conquestofamerica #OFM #endfamilyseparation #abolishice #colonialUSA #reaearch #scholarship #takinghistoryback #doepicshit #latinoamerica

Today I went to Peru’s National Museum to see one of the most impressive photo exhibitions I have ever seen: Covering 20 years of the Peruvian civil war (1980-2000), the photos speak for themselves. Still, in spite of the touching content, I was not satisfied with what I saw. On the contrary, the exhibition made me think that this conflict reflects almost all of the themes that occupy my mind, and that conventional social science provide as good as no serious answers as to what happens when people take to arms in the struggle for a better life. In the western epistemological tradition, wars retrospectively always become a matter of reconciliation and thereby a story about victims and “justice”. When it comes to the causes - and this especially goes for the post 9/11 epoch in which we still live - “explanations” get even worse, since they are in essence autistic: At the museum, as in any book or analysis of contemporary struggles, terrorism occurs because of, well... terrorism, thereby explaining nothing. Cause and effect are one and the same. If anything, Marxist analysis has shown that in order to understand the historical development of society, one has to consider not what conflates (hence the tendency of autism in the sciences) but rather the recurring contradictions. This exhibition thus made me realise that what needs to be done is to ask the right questions - which is why I have chosen to go to the remote areas of the rural Andean communities in the coming weeks to try to speak with some of the people involved in the conflict that almost saw the collapse of the Peruvian state in an armed struggle with the Peruvian Communist Party - better known to the world as Sendero Luminoso (The Shining Path).

Just beyond Cartagena's famous clocktower is Plaza de los Coches, a former "slave market". Cartagena is well known for its colorful colonial architecture and being the first Colombian city to declare independence from Spain. Yet the city's history of slavery is not as widely known or openly discussed. Cartagena was once the lagest port in Latin America for Africans brought to the nation's shores, forced and sold into enslavement. . . . Detrás del famoso Torre de Reloj en Cartagena está la Plaza de los Coches, un antiguo "mercado de esclavos". Cartagena es muy conocida por su colorida arquitectura colonial y por ser la primera ciudad colombiana en declarar la independencia de España. Sin embargo, la historia de esclavitud en la ciudad no es tan conocida o abiertamente discutida. Cartagena fue el puerto más largo de América Latina para los africanos traídos durante la esclavitud.

When Bolivar drafted the Bolivian constitution he opted for a strong government with the president, “the sun which, fixed in its orbit, imparts life to the universe,” serving a life-long term. Bolivar thought that Spanish Americans were “seduced by freedom,” but the constitution still included liberal elements such as civil rights and a strong, independent judicial power. Next, Bolivar moved to Columbia where he became dictator from 1828 to 1830. Bolivar hoped for a greater Columbia, a unity of countries that would emphasize national identity, promote economic sufficiency, and earn respect from other nations like Britain. Gran Columbia did not last due to forces of separatism and the strength of local governments. • Bolivar attempted to reform as well as liberate, but the established ruling classes did not agree with all of Bolivar’s plans. For example he sought to give land back to the indigenous people, but instead many Indians were forced to provide labor. Historians agree that Bolivar could not push the creole elite too far without fear of losing the revolution. But when independence was granted to the Northern South American countries, the elite ignored the full rights of many. Bolivar declared, “Independence is the only benefit we have gained, at the cost of everything else.”

El 22 de Junio de 1826 se instala el Congreso Anfictiónico de Panamá un viejo sueño de Bolívar. A este Congreso asistieron: Nueva Granada, Venezuela y Ecuador, como países grancolombianos, Guatemala, México y Perú; Provincias Unidas de Centro América, Chile y Buenos Aires no asistieron por la situación interna; Bolivia no llegó a tiempo, Gran Bretaña envió un observador. Ya desde Jamaica, en 1815, Bolívar decía: ¡Qué bello sería que el Istmo de Panamá fuera para nosotros lo que el de Corinto para los griegos!...Ojalá que un día tengamos la fortuna de instalar allí un augusto Congreso. Lo que ambicionaba era el entendimiento entre todas las naciones, la unidad del Continente, "formar de todo el Mundo nuevo una sola Nación". Los resultados del Congreso no fueron los deseados por el Libertador, quien al referirse al mismo, decía: "no es otra cosa que aquel loco griego que pretendía dirigir desde una roca los buques que navegaban". #joseantoniopaez #telemundoutah #latinamericanhistory #venezolanoseneuropa #telemundohouston #venezolanosencali #venezolanoseneuropa #venezolanosentampa #venezolanosentexas #venezolanosendoral #bolivariansocietyusa #latinamerican #libertadparavenezuela #madurodictador #fueramaduro #mariacorinamachado #venezolanos #panamá #simonbolivar #venezolanosennewjersey #venezolanosennewyork #venezolanosennoruega #colombianosenmiami #venezueladeantier #venezueladeayer #casauslarpietri #historiadevenezuela #marcorubio #venezolanosenusa #venezolanosenutah #granlogiadevenezuela

In the hill of Tepeyac, inside Mexico City, the Virgin of Guadalupe made her appearance to Juan Diego to tell all the native americans that she belongs to them. In that place was built a small church, and downhill, the great Basilica, where millions of people sing her a Mexican happy birthday on December 12, each year. It’s really colorful, but emotional at the same time. We need to remember that most of the native americans in Mexico born and die in poverty and they hold on the thought that she loves them in full. ----------------------- #latinamericapics #latinamericanhistory #historylessons #enjoythemoment #historylover #exploremoretoday

Simón Bolívar’s vision of a government with a separation of powers: The people of Venezuela already enjoy the rights they can legitimately and easily enjoy. Let us moderate, now, the pressure of excessive pretentions, which the form of a government not suited to their needs might perhaps excite. Let us abandon the federal forms not suited to us; let us abandon the triumvirate of the Executive Power and center it in one President; let us grant him sufficient authority to enable him to struggle against the obstacles anent our recent condition, the state of war we are in, and the kind of foreign and domestic enemies against whom we will have to battle for a long time. Lei the Legislative Power relinquish the functions belonging to the Executive and acquire, notwithstanding, a new consistency, a new influence in the balance of authority. Let the courts be strengthened by the stability and independence of the judges, the creation of juries, and civil and criminal codes not dictated by antiquity, nor by conquering kings, but by the voice of Nature, by the cry of Justice and by the genius of Wisdom. #venezueladeayer #granlogiadevenezuela #venezolanosenelmundo #venezolanosenuruguay #venezolanosencali #venezolanosentampa #venezuela #venezolanosentexas #venezolanosendoral #venezolanosenmiami #venezolanosenhouston #bolivariansocietyusa #sociedadbolivariana #sociedadbolivarianadevenezuela #nelsonbocaranda #telemundoutah #telemundo #univison #colombianosenmiami #colombianosenusa #ecuatorianosenmiami #ecuatorianosenusa #simonbolivar #latinamericanhistory #latinamericanheritage #fueramaduro #venezuela🇻🇪 #venezueladeantier #venezuela #venezolanosenutah #venezolanosenusa

Buenos Aires , #Argentina. Circa: the near not so recent past. We were in one of the libraries Borges ran. I joked with Jorge about my ability to write. He claimed I got my style from him. I told him he couldn’t see me— in other words he couldn’t match my skill— and a greater quiet took over the library. One of the librarians, a small Chilean woman who was recently engaged and mumbled when she spoke, dropped some books. Some students from the university had been overhearing our dialogue and stared at Borges, waiting for his response. I realized my comment could be interpreted as offensive until Jorge said, “But I can feel you.” And I sighed and the new silence that took over the library lightened and the old silence eventually returned. It turned out the #Chilean woman wasn’t really Chilean, but an informer for the #Perón regime. Years later Borges would lose his position of head librarian and end up at a meat shop. Sometimes I lose sleep, like tonight, wondering if I had something to do with it. I can’t remember if we spoke badly about Perón. I just can’t remember. And then I think about the difference in silences. There’s the absence of sound and then there’s the absence of sound. How much deliberate listening is required to capture the nuances in silences. Last I spoke to #Borges he said the ability to listen in this era— he actually used the word zeitgeist— he said the ability to deliberately and skillfully listen now and day is reserved for the blind. ||| #LatinAmericanHistory ||| #Latinx ||| #BuenosAires ||| #JorgeLuisBorges ||| #Libraries ||| #Peronismo ||| #JuanDomingoPeron ||| #LatinAmerica ||| #dictatorship

Eduardo Galeano’s ‘Memory of Fire’ Trilogy.🔥 • This brilliantly written history of the Americas is one of the most moving, impactful, and informative books/series of books I’ve read. Surveying the mythology of early Native American and Latin American people to the latter half of the 20th century, Galeano’s panoramic historical scope of the Western Hemisphere is a candle in the dark that is compassionate, passionate, and presented with auteur-like vision. If you’re into history or learning about the influence of colonial powers on the early American people check this one out!!!! • #EduardoGaleano #MemoryOfFire #Genesis #FacesAndMasks #CenturyOfTheWind #LatinAmerica #LatinAmericanHistory #Candles #Fire #BookStack #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblog #bookblogger #bookbloggers #bookchat #igreads #bibliophile #booklove #bookaddiction #instaread #instareads #goodreads #greatreads #readersofinstagram #bookish #bookishfeature #booklife #bookphotography #whattoread

"Simón Bolívar, Didn't Get Along Well With Other Revolutionary Generals". The Liberator, Simón Bolívar wasn't the only patriot general with an army in the field in Venezuela in the turbulent years between 1813 and 1819. There were several others, including Santiago Mariño, José Antonio Páez, and Manuel Piar. Even though they had the same goal "independence from Spain" these generals did not always get along, and sometimes came close to warring amongst themselves. It wasn't until 1817 when Bolívar ordered Piar arrested, tried and executed for insubordination that most of the other generals fell into line under Bolívar. #venezolanosenhouston #efemeridesvenezolanas #colombianosenmiami #bolivariansocietyusa #venezolanosenespaña #latinamericanhistory #venezueladeayer #telemundoorlando #telemundoutah #mariacorinamachado #venezolanosenusa #venezolanosenutah #bolivianosenusa #fueramaduro #madurodictador #350ya #historiadevenezuela #historialatinoamericana #venezueladeantier #presidentesvenezolanos #ucvistas #latinamericanliterature #venezuelalibre #casauslarpietri #ulamerida #venezolanosendenver #venezolanosendallas #venezolanosentexas

Fact about History:- How did the British, the Spanish and other Colonial powers took over India, Latin American? Ans:- They 1st Came as Missionaries saying there are just spreading the view of Jesus and wanted to help the poeple of that place. But later they destroyed those places religious, culture, looted their riches. And forced converted them and those who didn't they killed them. #colonism #britishempire #spanishconcistdores #missionary #latinamericanhistory #eastindiacompany #nepal #nepali #inthenameofjesus Source:- nagariknews.com
