They are invisible to western Media. They are silent to the Western Audience, however, 60% of Venezuela identifies themselves as Afro-Venezuelan. Venezuela is one of the few majority black countries in the hemisphere. Today, Jeanette Charles from Venezuela Analysis joins us to trace the history of the Afro-Venezuelans from the 1700s. We learn about the shared culture and heritage with Haiti, we talk about 19 and 20th-century imperialism and finally their empowerment after the Bolivarian revolution in 1998. In the end, we also look at their world and see what the Americans can learn and implement!
