I have been curious about the diversity within the African Diaspora since the 1950's as a kid growing up in the South Bronx and surrounded by the influx of Puerto Ricans and Cubans.  In 1978 still curious my suspicions were peaked when sitting on a beach in Acapulco Mexico a Black skinned Mexican boy caught my attention as he ran by kicking sand on my blanket.  

It was then that I decided to one day seek answers to the questions that seemed so obvious to me but not to others.  In 1992 I began the research on the diversity within the African Diaspora West.  Without funding or affiliation with an insititution I sat out to get the truth.  

In 2011 things are progressing.  For now what I suspected all along others are now shedding light on.  It is a major break-through with so much more to be done!
