The African population had a 3 male to 1 female ratio and since children born from Indigenous mothers carried their free status, African men married Native women to ensure that their descendants would be born free. According to the Mexican caste system imposed by Spain, the Indigenous population was considered citizens and could not be made slaves. At the bottom of the caste system were the Black slaves. Escaped slaves resorted to establishing settlements or palenques in Mexicos inaccessible mountains to preserve their freedom.
In 1591 Viceroy Don Luis de Velasco reported the existence of a group of cimarrones (Maroons) who had resided for the previous 30 years on a mountain called Coyula who live as if they were actually in Guinea. He referred to the famous case of Yanga, the Muslim maroon leader, who after fi ghting 30 years against the Spanish crown signed a peace accord and founded San Lorenzo de Los Negros, establishing the fi rst freedom enclave in Mexico.

That's pretty well known information for people in SW part of the USA.
Slaves also escaped to Mexico.
However, some black people in Mexico face a lot of oppression and poverty still.
