The Third Root | Sal Rojas Photo Exhibit
Please note, this event has expired.
Famed photographer and graffiti artist, Sal Rojas, takes Nashville on a visible journey exploring the roots, culture and life of the Afro Mexicans through the lens of his camera.
Photographer Sal Rojas will take you on a visual journey exploring the Roots, Culture & Life of the Afro-Mexicans. Afro-Mexicans make up more than 5% of Mexico’s population; yet remain invisible to the majority of Mexicans.
The Third Root is a visual experience like no other, as it unveils the unseen community of the Costa Chica area of Oaxaca and southern Guerrero, Mexico. Look into the eyes of those who have been suppressed from Mexico’s mainstream culture, as the photographs tell their story.
The Third Root Photo Exhibition is a preview of the documentary television series “Afro-Latinos – An Untaught History” produced independently by Director/Producer Renzo Devia of Creador Pictures, LLC. The documentary series illustrates the history and celebrate the rich Culture of people of African descent throughout Latin America. There will be a viewing of the documentary at Global Education Center on February 3, 2018. T
With this photography exhibit we hope to bring attention to Mexico’s “Third Root,” the Afro-Mexican legacy.
This performance is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with Tennessee Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, Metro Nashville Arts Commission and Vanderbilt University Center for Latin American Studies.
