Shared Roots is a weeklong series of bilingual presentations showcasing the shared histories, cultures and traditions of Afro peoples throughout the Americas.

Featured regions are Quisqueya (home of Haiti where the first successful slave rebellion occurred, and of the Dominican Republic, first Spanish colony in the Americas from where Hernan Cortes, Francisco Pizarro, Diego Velasquez and Alonso de Ojeda launched incursions into Mexico, Peru, Cuba, Venezuela), Mexico (which only last year included Afro-Mexicans in the census), Puerto Rico (a U.S. territory since 1898), and Spain (whose African influences are generally overlooked). Most events are free and open to the public.
