This week, CSMS is showcasing Heaven of Drums, a historical novel written by Argentine’s renowned author Ana Gloria Moya. The story brings to light a forgotten past in the history of Argentina: discrimination against people of African descents in the 19th century. In Argentina today, it is very difficult to find people of African ancestry as citizens.
Like most countries in the Americas, black folks fought with the highest form of bravery for the independence of their respective countries, only to find themselves being pushed aside once independence had been achieved. Argentina was no different. In Heaven of Drums, Ana Moya uses her beautiful writing to bring to light this long forgotten and ugly tale. Great read. Watch the video below:
