Afro-Latinx Identity

Searching for the Afro-Latinx Community Identity is a storymap created by Zihui Lei and Professor Mario Giraldo from the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). The project was funded by CSUN 2020 Diversity and Equity Innovation Grant.

The ultimate objective of the storymap is to help accelerate Afro-Latinx identity formation and build a pluralistic community with social equality and environmental justice. The storymap covers the identification of the Afro-Latinx identity, the origins of the mix-identity, cultural and historical Afro-Latinx achievements, current status of the new identity, as well as challenges and discrimination in Afro-Latinx communities.
