The T. J. Reddick Bar Association and the Broward County Hispanic Bar Association have launched a three-part series of events designed to engage and promote a dialogue among all communities regarding the history and current status of Afro-Latinx communities. The first of the series was held on Nov. 10 delving into the historical context of the creation of the Afro Latinx identity within the African diaspora and the United States. The panelists included renowned Professor Faye Harrison of University of Illinois, who provided an academic journey through history and current times. Attorney Gilbert Squires talked about his lived experiences to help explain the visibility of Afro-Latinx in Latin America and the United States. Part two will be in January.
