While watching this series, I wanted to be free like them, learning herbs, African music, traditions and healing. This followed them, not just in the Palenque, but when they were in the Hacienda Eden. African tradition was their source of power and strength. Initially in Eden this strength was found in the form of Mama Lorenza, their mother and herbal healer that they thought was deceased — so they called upon her as an elevated Ancestor to fight their battles. Her daughter Milagros which means miracles was the healer of the Hacienda Eden and her herbs were both healing and a form of revolt in the plantation system.
In fact, he is given lashes with a whip for not working hard enough! To address the controversy of historic inaccuracy, this is a difficult task.
Sometimes I wonder if television, made for the purposes of entertainment, can fully take on that role. Telenovelas have never been true to life to me — not in history, not in drama and certainly not in the unrealistic relationships we see in television romance.
Also, regarding the sexual content and violence, the truth is — we were raped historically and regarded as property, so violence was a reality and was accosted upon us in various forms, some forms continue to haunt both Afrodescendientes and former enslavers to this day. It may be unrealistic to view Telemundo as PBS, however, this does not mean writers should not be held accountable.
It just means that we have to continue to tell our stories and try to ensure that as we gain more visibility the narratives are told in our own voices.
Whether fact or fiction, may we draw upon the strength of our own Mama Lorenzas who call for our protection and for the opening of doors with Elegua leading the way. As they say in the Palenque — Somos Uno — we are one! She graduated summa cum laude and upon graduation, immediately embarked upon a Fulbright Hays-Group Project Abroad in Nigeria where she studied the Yoruba language at Obafemi Awolowo University.

Thanks in advance. Loved it!
As an African American woman and a descendant of slaves, this was so touching and personal. What a series!!! Cannot stop watching, which means I am not doing to much of anything else!!! It was hard to watch some of the scenes because of the way they treated their slaves, but what a story. And really great acting!!! Best TV in a long time! Beautiful paradise type scenery, great acting, great ends in every one of the episodes which tempted to keep on watching and the result — a weekend and three workday nights to finish it up.
The topic touches on slavery and the treatment of slaves in Colombia. Love the emotional and sentimental words in the songs, dancing and meetings by the slaves to cope with the pain and suffering. Lush scenery, abominable acting, and a predictable plot do NOT add up to five dozen episodes. Give me a root canal any day over this arrant waste of film.
All of the Actors were incredibly awesome!! It made you cry!
