Exploring Afro-Latino Culture through Travel: Interview with Kim Haas

This is part 2 of my conversation with Kim Haas, Executive Producer, Host & Creator of Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas. (Listen to part 1 here).
Kim takes us behind the scenes of her travel series. She shares how it all got started, the history afro-descendants in Central America, and how she got the opportunity to meet the family of the first female vice president of African descent in Latin America. We also discuss racism and colorism in Latin America, and the impact the Black Lives Matter movement has had on Afro-Latinos.

Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas is airing on PBS during the month of October. This groundbreaking TV series captures the heart and soul of Afro-Latino culture by exploring the history, art, music, dance, cuisine, and more that African descendants brought to Central and South America and the Caribbean.
