Muntú Bantú, Colombia

Memory Is at the Heart

Muntú Bantú, the only Afrodiasporic Memory Center in Colombia, is located in Quibdó, the capital of Chocó, the department with the largest Afro-descendant population in the country. For more than a decade, historian Sergio Mosquera has been running a ship where the memories of the enslaved African people in America are at the heart and not dismissed to some annexed room of Eurocentric history which, until now, has served as the official record of this territory.
