Summary/Abstract: This work aims to contribute to the field of Latin American pedagogy from the reflections that arise from our interventions, from our praxis. We recover the legacy of two political contexts and references of our America that we consider relevant: on the one hand the Cuban Revolution, which we consider a milestone in our continent and the world, on the other the experience in Brazil and specifically Paulo Freire. Both gestated a praxis, which was the result of the accumulation of educational experiences developed in the heat of the emancipatory processes in the continent. We understand that each work in this line that recovers the traditions, the views and knowledge regarding the pedagogical knowledge and accumulated experience from the educational praxis in the context of enmancipatory political projects in our America, is a relevant contribution that remains to be deepened. There is a field of knowledge, knowledge, experiences regarding education in our continent that continue to rescue and make visible from the present, understanding that said knowledge and experiences gave rise to a current of thought and educational action located in our America, born from the genuine of these territories, from that humus gestated since the Haitian revolution, the indigenous struggles, the struggles for the first independence and those of the 1960s and 1970s, all of them tireless struggles of the peoples on a continent that has not stopped resisting to colonialism for more than 500 years and that has created a pedagogical trend in the heat of these resistances. We also take a look at the contemporary processes in which and in which the current popular education is recreating and recreating itself.
