I am a Black Latina from Puerto Rico and watching this series has been eye opening for me. I have learned so much and it has been truly refreshing. Gates has done a tremendous job in telling a story, that is rarely shared. Thank you!

Not a great fan of this series. I wish Prof. Gates would have spoken to a few ordinary Dominicans - except for one brief comment from a musician, all the commentators were from the university. Also, I would have found it more credible if the names of the towns were actually pronounced correctly - or even close. Nagua, for example is pronounced nah gwah, not na goo ah. I understand this is about "Black in Latin America" but it seems as though Gates would have Dominicans deny their Spanish heritage.

Very informative and highly educational!

By Lois

from Atlanta, Ga.

Comments about PBS Black in Latin America DVD:

This is one of the best DVDs I have ever viewed. Not only is it informative, interesting but educational, as well. I knew there were many, many Blacks in Brazil but had no idea they were scattered in Mexico and Peru. I've had the opportunity to travel to Brazil and other parts of the world and have seen black faces in places I didn't think they would be. I've already gifted three other people with the Black in Latin America DVD and have watched my copy several times. Thank you for a wonderful piece of work.

Black in Latin America

By Jav from NY

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about PBS Black in Latin America DVD:

A very informative series. One I would definately share with my son who by the way is a Black Dominican. I found the last reviewer's comment interesting "...it seems as though Gates would have Dominicans deny their Spanish heritage". I believe Prof. Gates's point is that the African culture and heritage is not equally embraced as the European (Spaniard) by Dominican society. I would have to agree from personal experiences. I come to understand that African history and education is not incorporated as a national curriculum at the public school level. Which in the country's history has shown it to manifests into a degree of bias and intolerance.

Something you should have in your Home,

By Sunship, Spence

from Atlanta, Ga. and the World

Comments about PBS Black in Latin America DVD:

This is Great to have in your Home Library for Friends, Guest and most of all kids. It's always interesting to notice how the African ( Slavery ) Seed has Impact on all the Cultures of the World.
To define how you make it on Nothing, to show that Nature is God, and should be Respected and Protected. How we add a Flavor of Life in Food, Music and Love.

Informative and eye opening

By Ms. Allen

from Toronto, Ontario - Canada

Comments about PBS Black in Latin America DVD:

Black in Latin America - Wonderful exploration into the African Diaspora. Every episode is a revelation. Africans in Mexico?! Who knew? Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr.Gates. Your team is fantastic at sourcing credible experts as well as talking to normal people, a good mix. PBS kudos to you for another well produced Docu-series. I will buy it for sure.
