    As Old World diseases decimated Caribbean indigenous populations in the first decades of the s, enslaved blacks from Africa (bozales) gradually replaced their labor, but they also mingled and joined in flights to freedom, creating mixed-race maroon communities in all the islands where Europeans had established chattel slavery. Get this from a library! Identity and struggle at the margins of the nation-state: the laboring peoples of Central America and the Hispanic Caribbean. [Aviva Chomsky; Aldo Lauria-Santiago;].

    "Race and ethnic differences in religious involvement: African Americans, Caribbean blacks and non-Hispanic whites." Ethnic and Racial Studies, 32(7): This study examined differences in religious participation and spirituality among African Americans, Caribbean blacks (black Caribbeans) and non-Hispanic whites. Andrade became active in the Hispanic Labor Committee, an organization that would soon number Spanish-speaking union officials from AFL-CIO unions, the Teamsters, and the UAW, and later the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA).

    Slavery in Latin America was practiced in precolonial times.. During the Atlantic slave trade, Latin America was the main destination of millions of African people transported from Africa to French, Portuguese, and Spanish y's legacy is the presence of large Afro-Latino populations.. After the gradual emancipation of most black slaves, slavery continued along the Pacific coast.   The allocation of "Some other race" responses from the Census category to standard OMB race categories increases the totals for each race, but does not affect the number of Hispanics. The "Two or more races" category is present in Census and in the postcensal population estimates, but not in the Current Population Survey (CPS).
