I have recently purchased this DVD. Dr. Gates is phenomenal. I have previously purchased Dr. Gates' other DVDs: African American Lives, Part I and II and Faces of America. His programs are extremely informative and educational. Dr. Gates proves that America is truly a multiracial and multiethnic nation. There is no such thing as a pure American racially or ethnically. Many so-called pure Americans are very surprised to find a distant ancestor of a different race and/or ethnic group somewhere down the line.

His latest program is extraordinary. Blacks in Latin America have an ambiguous status. The average Latin America is either biracial or triracial with European, Native, and African ancestry. He/she is quick to acknowledge his/her European and Native ancestry but is extremely loathe to mention his/her African ancestry. This program is a complete eyeopener! I recommend Black in Latin America for everyone regardless of race and ethnicity.

The late Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, stated in his book titled, "They came before Columbus" that Africans had a vast influence in Latin America. Now we have this excellant documentry to view. Great work Dr. Gates

I viewed the series Black in Latin America on PBS and I recognized that it was something I needed to own to further enlighten myself as well as my family. It is educational for every American living in our great melting pot.

I have been studying African race relations for some time now and found this DVD by professor Gates to be a very good addition to my collection. Any educational documentary that is informative with good commentary goes a long way in helping me understand the various cultures around the world. It is interesting to note that countries in Latin America don't consider themselves as Africans, but more of European descent. It was interesting to see that there is wide spread race problems existing in these countries with a heavy African population. Educational and those interested in African culture should add this DVD to their collection.

The population of Africans in the British Colonies were close to 500,000 and the Portuguese and Spanish colonies close to 13 Million, the question what happen, many of them, death by passage from Africa to American Colonies, many death from the work, exploitation and sickness . What left, is a terrible situation forgotten (Mexico, Peru), in denial (Brazil, Republic Dominique), without hope (Haiti) and racism (Cuba despite what the Socialist revolution) a bleak future for the decent of this slave in Hispanic colonies

Excellent classroom tool. I use it in a course titled "Caribbean Culture" as an introductory overview of the region. My only complaint would be that often times the author's own prejudices are reflected in the commentary; a flaw that might well be unavoidable in this type of endeavor.

Henry L. Gates Jr. certainly is an authority in the search of the African influence in America & now also in the Caribbean. Majoring myself & still doing research in this same topic but concentrating in Borikén (known as Puerto Rico) and the Caribbean, this documentary has been immensely valuable. Very little recognition is always being given to some of the Caribbean islands, especially those of spanish invasion as being more European, and devaluing and/or denying the Aboriginal and African influences. Beautiful work Mr. Gates and looking forward to future gems.

I really enjoyed viewing this documentary Dr. Gates did of Black in Latin America. I found it very educational and very enlighting. The thing to remember here is that there are millions of people who are the decendants of Africans who were stolen to become slaves in another part of the world. We are part of the African Disporia, we're are in Europe, Latin America, the U.S., the Carribean and many other parts of the world. Even though today we are of different cultures and experiences, we share that one thing that we are the decendants of those Africans stolen a long time ago, we are the African Disporia.
