From the Editor's Introduction:

One might even be inclined to say that over the centuries almost all the world has met there. After all, it long served as the Spanish entry point into the country and later became the geographic site to which many enslaved Africans were introduced to Mexico. This multicultural, multiethnic, and multiracial city, like the rest of the State of Veracruz, is the cultural jewel of Mexico. . .

I believe that this bilingual publication of the journal, along with those planned on Afromestizo communities, will introduce our readers to another crucial component of the African Diaspora, expanding Callaloo's dedication to our collective understanding of the Americas and the world.
