A Revolution inside of the Revolution: Afro-Cuban Experiences after 1961

(p.231) Epilogue
Antiracism in Cuba

Devyn Spence Benson

University of North Carolina Press

The official conclusion to the campaign to eliminate discrimination made it nearly impossible for Afro-Cubans to criticize leading figures who maintained prejudicial ideas or practices because of the accepted belief that good revolutionaries could not be racists. The Epilogue traces how despite these challenges some Afro-Cuban intellectuals, especially black and mulata women, found subtle ways to fight continued discrimination and reclaim and revalue blackness as a part of revolutionary culture in the late 1960s. Using the work of 1960s filmmaker Sara Gómez and twenty-first-century Afrocubana activists, this final chapter highlights how Afro-Cuban struggles for equality continue today using both old and new strategies.
