Argentina has spectacular natural wonders, exceptional landscapes and is a unique country but it is known as "The Whitest Nation in South America".
Why is this? What is the truth of the popular phrase of "There Are No Black People Here"? What is the "Blanqueamiento" of Black people and why do Argentine officials say Black people have "disappeared"? When, why and how many Africans were taken to Argentina? How did the enslave contribute towards Argentina's nation-building and why have they been "forgotten"?
Focussing on the era between 16th and 19th century, this fascinating fact-filled introductory book answers all these questions plus lots more in an easy-to-read style. The Black History Truth aims to promote knowledge, understanding and the truth of Black History in an important but often overlooked former Spanish colony of Argentina.
With over 200 activity ideas and over 80 illustrations to bring Black History Truth events to life, be on the voyage of self-discovery because Black History is an essential element of World History.
