The jamaica flower and tamarindo are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In Jamaica and Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico, we meet five people to explore African heritage in Mexico, an identity that goes beyond the color of one’s skin. Guest Speaker: Ebony Bailey, director. Presented in conjunction with “afroLAtinindad: mi casa, my city.”
