An early afro Peruvian organization for social, cultural and political vindication. Since its inception it tried to coordinate the actions of various national groupings promoting the acknowledgement of the historic rights and cultural initiatives in favour of the population of African descent. In order to strengthen a development of a “black political identity” it was reconfigured at the beginning of the year 200 as the Francisco Congo Afro-Peruvian National Movement, with its technical office the “Ethnic Development Centre” (CEDET).
