Today in our program, we continue talking about Blackness in the Americas. Our guess is Paraguay. We share a little bit of history, music, culture and more of Paraguay and Afro-Paraguayan.  Let’s beginning. Listen more in our Podcast.

Paraguay is a beautiful country. It’s located in South America. The official name is Republica del Paraguay.  It shares borders with Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia.  

Spanish conquistadores colonized Paraguay in 1524. The capital city is Asuncion. People speak Spanish and Guarani. Paraguay overthrew the local Spanish administration in May 14, 1811. Paraguay’s first dictator was José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia who ruled Paraguay from 1814 until his death in 1840, with very little outside contact or influence. 

Now, let’s talk about Afro-Paraguayos. As we have been talking about African descendants in the Americas, we continue thinking under that idea that very few people will name a country like Paraguay as a country with African descendants. This is something that we are trying to uncover. We want to tell you the other side of the story.
