Forging Diaspora

This chapter traces the histories of Afro-Cuban encounters with African Americans after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, and narrates the story of Ramiro de la Cuesta, an alumnus of Bethune–Cookman College and a product of Afro-Cuban and African American linkages during the prerevolutionary era. It uses reflections on interviews conducted in Havana to meditate on the meaning of Afro-diasporic encounters in the past, present, and future. The chapter notes that De la Cuesta's experience highlights a bygone era that might have increasing relevance to a new epoch of Cuban–U.S. relations that could be on the horizon.

Keywords:   Afro-Cuban, African Americans, Cuban Revolution, Bethune–Cookman College, Havana
