Do Black Lives Matter in El Salvador? You bet! On this episode, the LMC speaks with Carlos Lara about the forgotten history of Afro-descendants in El Salvador and the places & monuments hidden in place sight that reveal this secret legacy. Carlos Lara is a member of Afroos, a grassroots organization dedicated to documenting the Afro-diaspora history in El Salvador.
