JAMAICA & TAMARINDO:
AFRO TRADITION IN THE HEART OF MEXICO
The jamaica flower and tamarind are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In Jamaica and Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico, we meet five people to explore African heritage in Mexico City, an identity that goes beyond the color of one's skin.
