The Legacies of Cuban-Mexican Solidarities

(p.245) Epilogue
Cuban Émigrés and Independence in the Nineteenth-Century Gulf World

Dalia Antonia Muller

University of North Carolina Press

This concluding segment examines the legacies of Cuban-Mexican solidarities by tracing them forward through the Mexican Revolution. Focusing on the work of Cuban journalist and diplomat, Manuel Márquez Sterling, the chapter follows his life story from his earliest travels to Cuba as a boy in the 1880s to his appointment as the Cuban ambassador to Mexico in 1912. More than three decades of travel between Cuba and Mexico convinced Márquez Sterling that the two countries faced the same internal and external problems and must work together to find solutions to them. Yet, such collaboration seemed hard to generate and sustain. Thinking back to Latin America’s official indifference toward Cuban independence in the 1890s, Márquez Sterling, writing in the first decade of the twentieth century, placed his faith in Americanismo and championed the inter-Latin American popular transnational solidarities that defined it. People and not states, he reasoned, were the key to the transnational networks and connections that would inspire the cross-pollination of ideas and bring about social change.
