In 1997, Afro Colombian farming communities in northwestern Colombia were driven from their homelands in a military & paramilitary operation called Operation Genesis. Families were torn apart, and people were assassinated. Some disappeared and have not been found since. But they returned to their homeland years later, in an attempt to reclaim some of what they lost. This is their story. In their own words.
