"The African Presence in México - From Yanga to the Present," the educational panels display, is based on the most comprehensive project ever organized about African contributions to Mexican culture. For nearly 500 years, the existence and contributions of the African descendants in Mexico have been overlooked. Africans arrived in Mexico in 1519. Yanga, an African leader, founded the first free African township in the Americas January 6, 1609. Since then, Africans have continued to contribute their artistic, culinary, music, and traditions to Mexican culture through the present day. The exhibition features artists such as Rufino Tamayo, Elizabeth Catlett, Francisco Toledo, Francisco Mora, Maria Yampolski; and Afro-Mexicano artists Ignacio Canela, Mario Guzmán, Guillermo Vargas, and Hermengildo González.
