Latino Arts Project presents "Yanga and the AfroMexican Experience," which breaks ground by introducing new and existing materials in a direct and purposeful, bilingual educational experience using all five senses. Visitors will be able to view a powerful and thoughtful overview of Gaspar Yanga's role as a liberator and the slave trade experience in the Americas, including examples of original tools used to punish.

In addition, the exhibition highlights the often-neglected story of the Mascogos, who took the Southern route of the unofficial Underground Railroad to escape slavery in the United States to found the desert town of Nacimiento de los Negros (Birth of the Negros) in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila.

The exhibition, curated by Jorge Baldor and Latino Arts Project in collaboration with the African American Museum of Dallas, includes commissioned and collected Folk Art, interactive visual displays, sounds of African drums and videos of Afro-Mexican festivals and original dances.

The exhibition will remain on display through October 15.
