In the year 2005, the Supreme Commander Hugo Chavez made a decree that the 10th of May would be the Afro –Venezuelan day. He decreed this day in honour of the insurrection lead by Jose Leonardo Chirinos, (who was the head of an uprising in search of the establishment of the Republic in the country and the elimination of poverty). Today, we want to pay a tribute to our African decedents who always fought for equality and against discrimination in our country, and also we want to remember and pay tribute to all the ones that fought for the freedom and democracy in South Africa.

And in order to celebrate such important dates, on behalf of the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and on behalf of the greatest men and African descendent that Venezuela has given birth too, the Eternal Commander Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias , we are giving you a small contribution for the children of this School: a bag with school utilities, with this contribution the children will be able to continue their studies and in future be the leaders of their beautiful country and extend the Mandela legacy.

After this handing over we want to invite you to enjoy the exposition by the name: “Afro – Venezuelan heroes”.

The intension of this exhibition is to show the immense richness of the individuals that fought for our freedom, they are our heritage and they created our national identity” and we want you to know this part of our history.

This exposition is made of colourful illustrations and presents small biographies of Jose Joaquin Veroes, Geronimo Guacamaya, Jose Tomas leon, Leonardo Chirinos, Leonardo Infante, Francisca Paula Aguado, Hipolita Bolivar ,Marta Cumbale, Jose Ascension Farreras, Ines Maria Paez, Matea Bolivar, Pedro Camejo y Hugo Chavez.
