This revisionist study seeks to unearth the hidden history of Blacks in Argentina, revealing their significant contributions to Argentine culture, society and history. This work should appeal to scholars interested in African-American studies, Latin American Studies, and revisionist historiography. In Spanish. Although Blacks played a significant role in Argentina's formation, fighting in the revolutionary war of the nineteenth century and contributing greatly to construction of an Argentine cultural identity, they have all but disappeared from the country's social map and few recall their place in the nation's history. This revisionist study seeks to unearth the hidden history of Blacks in Argentina, looking at how Afro-Argentines, in the face of efforts to destroy their legacy, managed to create a cultural expression important to the understanding of present day Argentina. The study also analyzes the way in which certain figures in the nineteenth century brought about the silencing of Black voices and the amnesia that inevitably led to the contemporary ignorance regarding the contributions of Afro-Argentines to Argentine culture, society and history.
