EARLY CALIFORNIA AFRO-LATINO PRESENCE
Carlos Salomon will be giving a talk about these early Afro-Latinos and their impact on California.
Sonoma,
Sonoma County Museum, 425 7th St, Santa Rosa, CA
Event Description

 Among the earliest non-indigenous residents of California were hundreds of people of African ancestry who descended from slaves taken to Mexico during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. These Afro-Latinos, as they have come to be called, helped shape the character of California much as Puritans shaped the character of New England. They blazed trails and established towns and ranches that grew into major cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, Monterey, and San Jose. Several amassed considerable fortunes and acquired high-ranking positions in the military and government, including Pio Pico, the last governor of Mexican California.

Carlos Salomon will be giving a talk about these early Afro-Latinos and their impact on California. Carlos is currently an Associate Professor at California State University, East Bay, in the Department of Ethnic Studies, and is the author of Pio Pico: The Last Governor of Mexican California, University of Oklahoma Press (2010).

Lecture sponsor receives two tickets and credit in the Museum's marketing materials.
