Cuba’s Unfinished Race Revolution


I want readers to understand how racism and antiracism can exist at the same time even in a revolutionary setting.

Antiracism in Cuba: The Unfinished Revolution by author and professor Devyn Benson is the long-untold history of racism against Black Cubans.  The San Francisco Bay View interviewed Benson about the recent publication of her book, discussing the rise of Cuba’s contradictory anti-racist ideologies, the creation of “progressive” but unenforced anti-racist legislation, and the cultural exchange between Afro-Cuban and African-American communities.
