Watch How This Small Town in Venezuela is Embracing its African Roots
TeleSurTV investigates the rich history of Afro-Latinos living in the Venezuelan town of San Agustin.
The video shows students learning about African music, dance and history all the while preparing for a revolution. San Agustin is revolutionary because it has created a school curriculum that is entirely focused on Black history.
Members of the town have embraced the Bolivarian Revolution — which was founded by late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. This left-leaning political movement is making significant changes in the social, economic and political life of Venezuelans.
