AfroLatin@s Now: Connecting Stories
AfroLatin@s Now: Connecting Stories is a podcast series produced by the AfroLatin@ Forum offering thoughtful and informed analyses of pressing stories from around the globe that are connected to the experience of Latin@s of African descent in the United States.
Juan Flores was an educator who was thoroughly committed to his many students over the course of an academic career that spanned more than 45 years. In acknowledgement of his dedication to teaching, learning, and critical thinking, and his deep concern with furthering the cause of social justice, the AfroLatin@ Forum has established The Juan Flores AfroLatin@ Scholarship Fund.
