Devyn Spence Benson, ‘Black Consciousness in Cuba: The Untold Revolution’
February 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This lecture is part of the Institute for the Study of the Americas (ISA) ‘On the Matter of Race and Race Relations in Cuba’ Speakers Series. These speakers are dedicated to the examination of the complexities of race relations in Cuba, with particular attention to the ways that the Cuban revolution, with its doctrinal commitment to social justice and racial equality, addressed–or failed to address–inequities with deep historical antecedents. Speakers offer uniquely critical perspectives from which to assess the state of race relations in Cuba based on extensive research in and travel to Cuba.
