This lecture explores race and marginality in Cuba as well the impact of African-based religions on Cuban society and culture and their boomerang effects on the U.S.
Fernández Díaz brings a deep examination of the intersections between African-American and Afro-Cuban culture and the interactions between both cultures since the XIX century. He also reflects on the impact of President Obama’s success on Afro-Cubans on the island and in exile, and what this represents for their future. Finally, he shares and analyzes his own experiences as an Afro-Cuban who has lived on both sides of the Florida straits.
