In 1943 Duke Ellington performed the symphony Black, Brown, and Beige at Carnegie Hall for the first time, describing it as “a parallel to the history of the American Negro”. Similarly, Latinos experience colorism and racist generalizations as African-Americans, evidenced by the various accounts of racial profiling by law enforcement and the media. Unfortunately, the vast diversity in appearance within Latinos and African-Americans, as a result of various diasporas, falls behind the blanket of prejudice. As Ellington indicated, our variety in appearance perhaps will lead us to distinct experiences, but that does not negate that we still fall under the same umbrella.

 

Mondays through Fridays, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
