Product Description

Of more than ten million Africans brought to the Americas as slaves, only six percent were taken to the territory now known as the United States, with the rest being taken to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. In 1990, Tony Gleaton began making portraits of the present day descendants of African slaves brought to what was the New Spain in the 1500s, 1600s, and 1700s. In these portraits which resulted in the exhibition Africa's Legacy in Mexico, which was extensively exhibited by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in the U.S. and in Mexico and Cuba by the Mexican National Council for Culture and the Arts, Gleaton developed a style that would allow him to explore issues of cultural identity and present his own personal descriptions of beauty, family, and goodness..
