Afro-Cuban Alliance - Revista Islas

The Afro-Cuban Alliance's magazine Islas, in Spanish and English, is at www.angelfire.com/planet/islas. The site still functions as of April, 2017. They were NED funded from 2005-2013, giving them a great advantage over the many Cuban critics who choose to work within the system and have much less of an on-line presence due to the embargo. The last issue of Islas was October, 2013 and the Afro-Cuban Alliance did not receive funding in 2014. Back issues are available on-line. Their functions and personnel appear to have been taken over by the Plataforma de Integración Cubana.

In 2013, the Alliance participated in the AfricAméricas Week to explore racism in Cuba, Afro-Latin culture, history and arts
May 6-11, 2013, Pittsburgh.

From the masthead:

“Islas” is a quarterly publication dedicated to Afro-Cuban issues. It is part of a larger project named Afro-Cuban Alliance (ACA), a nonpartisan, not for-profit, charitable and educational organization in existence since May 2004, based and incorporated in the State of Florida.   

Islas will seek to inform Cubans of African descent on the island and abroad about civil rights, the hidden history of slavery, racial discrimination in Cuba, and the experience of civil rights movements internationally.   

To ensure a broad spectrum of perspectives and to promote public discussion, we seek to receive articles from Afro-Cubans, individuals of African descent throughout the world, and other interested persons to better gain their perspectives and experiences on the status of African-descent populations in their countries and the struggles they have faced. Islas accepts articles and essays related to history, art, literature, religion, folklore, and contemporary issues. All the articles reflects the opinion of the authors.

Jaqueline H. Arroyo is President and Founder,  Afro-Cuban Alliance, Inc.

Juan Antonio Alvarado is the Editor in Chief, Revista Islas.
