The story behind this video starts on the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent. In 1635, two slave ships wrecked there and the African slaves escaped to freedom. They mixed in with the native Caribs, giving birth to a new Afro-Caribbean culture - the Garifuna (Gareefoonah). In the centuries since, the Garifuna migrated and founded villages along the Caribbean coast of Central America. Lonny Shavelson reports from Guatemala.
