The Afro-Descendant Project - Puerto Rico 

Photographs, emancipation certificates and historical records will be used to create tryptic markers that honor the sacrifices and contributions made by our African descendants. Markers will be placed throughout Afro-Puerto Rican communities and alongside structures and industries that were built from the wealth made from slavery.
