Afrocolombianidad 1851-2006

MAY 21st

is Colombia's National day of Afrocolombianidad commemorating the abolition of chattel slavery in Columbia, the fourth largest state of AFRIKANS in South America.

Africans were forced to work on plantations of sugar cane & cocoa, in gold mines and large mansions of the planters and colonisers. Though slavery was abolished they were forced to live a wretched improvised life in the jungles along side the indigenous populations for many generations.

Today, we give thanks for the efforts of the ancestors in particular we remember the GREAT POET , THINKER :

Obese Candelario
