Check out what happens when a developing, thirdworld town is flooded with over 20,000 reused bicycles. The following film, The Bicycle City, is a documentation of what occurred to an impoverished Nicaraguan village as bicycles provided by David Schweidenback and Pedals For Progress began to influx. You’ll be amazed at how the simple concept of mobility really affects the lives of the underprivileged villagersa true testament of change and social empowerment!
Kudos to the Miami Herald for putting together such an expansive and interactive look at AfroLatinos, who are 80 to 115 million strong and a presence, in varying degrees, in almost every country in the region. The informative 5part series is designed as a journey through Latin America which begins in Nicaragua and ends in Columbia. So far, so good the problem really begins or should I say the controversy starts on part 2 with an article on the Dominican Republic entitled Black denial.
