What is an African American?

If Asians are from Asia, and Europeans are from Europe, where are African Americans from?

What distinguishes an African American from a Native American?

What distinguishes a Native American from a Mexican?

A Taino from a Puerto Rican?

A Puerto Rican from a Haitian?

Who were the Africans who came to the Americas before Columbus?

What did they look like?

What is common to all indigenous peoples?

What is different?

This mural suggests these, and more, questions.
