This chapter delves deeper into the Cuban associational life, and offers readings of key social and cultural events that were presented as Cuban patriotic celebrations and other events that were marked as pan-Latino/a festivities. It turns to the less prominent Cuban social clubs—Club Social Cuba, La Sociedad Maceo y Martí, and Logia Isla de Cuba. The events sponsored by these clubs illustrate a portrait that demonstrates the various ways the black and white Cubans negotiated their national identities on the terrain of popular culture from within two distinct, though sometimes overlapping, points of view: first, as Cubans of the diaspora who were negotiating ties to the island as they established roots in the city as a colonia cubana, and second, as Cubans of the colonia hispana, which during this period took into account notions of inter-American and hemispheric unity and identity.

Keywords:   cultural events, Cuban patriotic celebrations, pan-Latino festivities, Club Social Cuba, La Sociedad Maceo y Martí, Logia Isla de Cuba, colonia cubana, colonia hispana
