The Falú Foundation in Puerto Rico has as principal objective the research, documentation and dissemination of the African history and heritage. Dr. Falú asserts that in Puerto Rico exists “institutionalized racism” because of the negative connotation attributed to Blackness and African heritage. She explains her work contacting African descendants in other Latin American countries in order to create alliances to address the issue of racism and discrimination and to disseminate the true story of African heritage.
