When one talks about the past in Peru, one often thinks of the political violence that swept the country in the 1980s and 90s, but there are other pasts and pains too, including the repression of Peru's Afro-Peruvian and indigenous peoples, as well as forced sterilizations and violence against women. That's why we've put both "legacy" and "past" in the plural form.
