A Partnership Competitive Fellowship Program for Projects Studying
Afro Latino and Afro Latino Communities - Issues of Social Justice,
Equity and Inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean
Hunter College/City University of New York, the Global Afro Latino
and Caribbean Initiative (GALCI), and the Franklin H. Williams
Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI)
are searching for financing for Visiting Fellowships in collaboration
with sponsoring institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Fellowship program was financed in part with funds from the
Ford Foundation Fall 2003/Spring 2004 and Fall 2005.
Issues of increased social inclusion for historically marginalized
African descendant groups have become important topics of social
justice, equity and Inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Compensatory social programs and national efforts to define and
implement affirmative action programs are engaging scholars and
social activists throughout the Western Hemisphere. In an effort
to advance information and research on these important social
programs, Hunter College, GALCI and CCCADI plan to partially support
researchers from Latin America and the Caribbean working on these
topics. Fellows will spend a semester hosted by Hunter College,
