Archive Story


Between 1502 and 1866, 11.2 million Africans disembarked from slave ships in the New World during the Middle Passage. Of those 11.2 million people, only 450,000 came to the United States. The rest of the enslaved Africans who survived the journey were taken to the Caribbean, Latin America and South America." Join us as we are led by College of San Mateo Ethnic Studies Professor and Chair, Dr. Frederick Gaines, through an exploration on the history of African and Latino Americans working and living side by side, and how we can continue that tradition at Foothill. The first portion will be the film screening, with a discussion to follow.
