Chinese Cubans

This chapter discusses how Cubans, who themselves had recently achieved independence from Spain, found affinity with the Chinese Revolution of 1911, overthrowing dynastic rule and applauding migrant transnational political activity in support of the Chinese nationalists. Cuban newspapers chronicling the revolution in China noted the significance of the 10th October for both young nations, marking the beginning of an independent Cuba and a modern, republican China. Commentators drew parallels between Chinese revolutionary Sun Yat-sen and Cuban independence leaders Carlos Manuel de Cespedes and Jose Marti, a discourse that has continued to this day. Alongside this glorification of the Chinese freedom fighter and celebration of the republican revolution in China, however, anti-Chinese images continued to surface.

Keywords:   Cubans, independence from Spain, Chinese Revolution, Sun Yat-sen, Jose Marti, Carlos Manuel de Cespedes
