Shared Roots: A Celebration of Afro-Latinx Culture
AfroMundo was born of a desire to counter alienation and marginalization by fostering civic engagement. It was therefore founded on the principles of convite—an age-old collaborative tradition that enables community members to pool their talents and scarce resources for rituals of life, socialization and mutual support, whether to collectively harvest each other’s fields, erect homes, tend to the sick, bury the dead, celebrate Feast Days or organize festivals, thus strengthening communal bonds and ensuring that no one toils, grieves or celebrates alone.
In the spirit of convite which takes into account that communities are wellsprings of wisdom, talents and skills, AfroMundo is a diverse, multigenerational collective of tradition bearers, storytellers, community historians, artists, cultural specialists and humanities scholars with the shared goal of nurturing community through meaningful traditional as well as contemporary cultural, artistic, and humanities programs designed to nourish the soul, address inequities, spark informed dialogues, and establish alliances to combat racism and bias.
