"Afro-insurgents vs. Afro-royalists: Early Mexican War of Independence and Cádiz liberalism, 1810-1813"

Dr. Malfavon’s talk will share the ways by which Veracruz’s Afro-descendants during the early years of the Mexican War of Independence, 1810-1813, engaged local and transatlantic political and ideological frameworks that helped them shape the outcomes of the struggle. By looking at their participation as either royalists or insurgents and their experiences with 1812 Cadiz liberalism, his paper tackles the ways by which regional war and liberalism were transformed by Black leadership and agency.
