Anthony Jerry discusses the history and challenges for recognitions of Black Mexico and the broader Pacific region of Latin America. Jerry describes his research on a Black Mexican community of Costa Chica and its complex racial identity development. Responding to Jerry’s presentation, Alex Borucki describes the potential value of conducting comparative research that connects the movements of, as well as the locations where, Black communities developed in the Pacific regions of Latin America. Sabrina Smith suggests more attention to the transpacific slave trade, as well as the emergence of significant social and racial contestations by Afro-Mexicans in both historical and contemporary contexts.
