“American Sabor” shows how Latin rhythms shaped U.S. sound, at Atlanta History Center

“the exhibition makes the point that 20th-century Latin music in the United States was inherently political. A display of album cover art and videos throughout the show help tell that story. Unfortunately, the text doesn’t always do its part. Although a discussion of Cesar Chavez’s protests with the United Farm Workers of America mentions that the movement was concurrent with and in solidarity with protests for the civil rights movement, it misses the opportunity to examine how or if the music explored the discrimination faced by black Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and Cubans.”
