Yanga Rediscovered: The First Liberator of the Americas

This exhibition, for the first time, displays reproductions of the actual official historical documents from the Archive General de la Nacion (National Archives) in Mexico City and Archivo General de Indias (Archive of the Indies) in Seville, Spain. These track the correspondence between Luis de Velasco, Viceroy of New Spain, Gaspar Yanda and Felipe III, the King of Spain. Also included is the 1630 Acto de Fundacion (Incorporation Act) for the foundation of San Lorenzo de los Negros, the community that resulted from Yanga’s courageous actions.
