Since the eighteenth century, an increased number of Afro-Latinos have traveled to and from the Caribbean, Central, and South America, experiencing varying national hegemonic systems and founding unique perspectives on definitions of race, gender, and identity.  Art, historical, anthropological, and sociological scholarship has often examined Caribbean people, and particularly artists, from a narrow lens, discussing only the historical implications of single nations and overlooking the important international travel experiences of many artists. This symposium considers the ideological shifts that Afro-Latino migrants and immigrants have undergone through their experiences in Latin America and the United States. Exploring such changes reveals a narrative that recounts the transnational and sociopolitical relationships of the colonizer and the colonized from a lens melding different racial and political ideologies.
