Abstract

Afro-Latinx is a complex identity with layered components of racial and ethnic significance. This paper focuses on the impact Indiana University’s Latino Studies program and African American and African Diaspora Studies department introductory course curricula has on student awareness and understanding about Afro-, Latinx, and the intersectionality of these racial and ethnic identities. We present recommendations for utilizing culturally relevant pedagogies and integrating Afro-Latinx identity into curriculum.
