Afro-Colombian Week in Bogotá

This is Afro-Colombian Week, celebrating the culture of Colombians of African origin, who make up perhaps 20% of Colombia's population.

The celebrations include food, music and handicrafts near the Las Aguas TransMilenio station, as well as events at the Gaitan Theatre on Ave. Septima.

Afro-Colombians are disproportionately poor and concentrated along Colombia's Pacific and Caribbean coasts.
