Today we remember Mexico’s President of African descent, Vicente Guerrero officially abolishing the Maafa (slavery) in Mexico on September 16, 1829. The Maafa was banned soon after Mexico won its independence in 1821, but it was not officially abolished until 1829.

The existence of Afro-Mexicans was officially affirmed in the 1990s when the Mexican government acknowledged Africa as Mexico’s “third root”. But Mexico’s real history shows the African presence in the country going back thousands of years.
