Afro-Descendants in Latin America

In the Motocycle Diaries, Che Guevara  makes this observation: "The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations."

All the more reason for everyone to know the history of Africans in Latin America and to critically examine Eurocentric analyses of history.
