The Epilogue concludes the book by examining the long arc of Cuba’s place with the American radical imagination, from the 1960s to the present day. It argues that while the achievements of the island’s revolution have been incomplete, imperfect, and often contradictory, particularly with regard to question of individual liberty, race, and sexuality, Cuba’s significant social achievements nevertheless make it an enduring and critically important episode within the history of efforts to remake the world according to socialist principles of equality, one whose history remains relevant today. By summarizing the Cuban Revolution’s triumphs and shortcomings, together with the responses of U.S. social justice activists, the section provides a foundation from which to speculate upon the possible future of Cuba’s relationship to U.S. social justice movements and the American Left.
