Carlos Moore publica en Brasil 'Pichón', su autobiografía  9/6/2015 Diario de Cuba: "El intelectual cubano Carlos Moore, de 72 años, ha lanzado en Brasil su autobiografía, Pichón: raza y evolución en Cuba. En la obra habla de racismo, identidad, mujer negra, exilio, así como de las realidades del continente africano y de la Isla, los Estados Unidos y Brasil, según informa El País."

Un negro en eterno exilio  9/5/2015 El Pais: "El largo viaje de Carlos Moore, el activista e intelectual que denunció el racismo en Cuba y pasó su vida perseguido por los dos lados de la Guerra Fría"

The Confluence of African Politics: Brazil, Cuba and the U.S.  7/17/2015 Real News: "Yes. Carlos Moore is a very controversial figure. But a very important black nationalist, pan-Africanist. Former Marxist, former supporter of the Cuban revolution. And I note in my chapter that Malcolm X and Carlos Moore met in Paris in November 1964. Because Carlos Moore, who was a young man at the time, was providing security for Malcolm as he traveled throughout France. Malcolm gave Carlos a mandate to help build the Organization of Afro-American Unity in Europe. In Paris. And to create a group to help the forces loyal to Patrice Lumumba in the Congo. Carlos Moore accepted that challenge despite his disagreements with Malcolm on the Cuban revolution. Because Carlos Moore became this enchanted and eventually was--lived in exile for many years, and became the most prominent Afro-Cuban critic of the Cuban revolution."

“El racismo es una forma de terrorismo”  6/23/2015 Pagina 12: "Nacido en Cuba, el escritor lleva cuarenta años estudiando el origen del racismo: sus viajes lo llevaron a compartir vivencias con Malcolm X y Fela Kuti. “Es cierto que la violencia engendra violencia, pero al mismo tiempo no soy pacifista, estoy por la resistencia.”"

Maya Angelou: The last Interview  5/28/2014 Yoruba Affairs list on Google: by Toyin Falola, who likes to be called "His Royal Majesty of Academic Affairs," with comment by Carlos Moore, who made the last interview with Maya Angelou.

Los Castro han consolidado el ‘patrón histórico de discriminación’ y ahogado la voz de los negros  6/7/2013 Racismo en Cuba: parte de la brigada Carlos Moore, Cubaverdad - "El analista político y exiliado cubano Enrique Patterson afirmó que el régimen de los Castro no solo ha consolidado un “patrón histórico de discriminación racial” en el país, sino que, aún peor, han ahogado la voz de los afrocubanos. En Cuba los negros son “ciudadanos de segunda a los que se trata como blancos siempre y cuando sean comunistas”, dijo Patterson, exprofesor de Historia de la Filosofía de la Universidad de La Habana y exiliado desde 1992, en una entrevista con EFE. El analista, que este jueves hablará en el Miami Dade College sobre el racismo en Cuba, resaltó que la discriminación es crónica en el régimen castrista, pero no es bien conocida por gran parte de la comunidad internacional."

El miedo al negro, un arma de la ‘revolución’  6/7/2013 Racismo en Cuba: parte de la brigada Carlos Moore, Cubaverdad

Roberto Zurbano y los 10,000 negros muertos de Carlos Moore  4/6/2013 Cuba Independiente y Democrática: "There is an unstated threat," Moore said. "Blacks in Cuba know that whenever you raise race in Cuba, you go to jail. Therefore the struggle in Cuba is different. There cannot be a civil rights movement. You will have instantly 10,000 black people dead."

FMP - Mark Wells on Afro-Cubans and protest against the imprisonment of Darsi Ferrer, part 2  1/15/2012 YouTube: part of the Carlos Moore campaign - "A group of prominent African Americans, traditionally sympathetic to the Cuban revolution, have for the first time condemned Cuba, demanding Havana stop its callous disregard for black Cubans and declaring that racism in Cuba must be confronted."

Felabration! The Third Edition of the BN Book Review Delves deep into the Life of an African Icon  5/31/2011 Bella Naija: "The introduction to the book, given by Dr Carlos Moore, is a bit too subservient for my taste and in my view doesn’t engage with the negative side effects of some of Fela’s excesses. We all know that Fela’s life is worth celebrating but we do injustice if we do not speak candidly of the ‘other’ publicized aspects of his life, the repercussions of which may have contributed to his untimely demise."

CIBERDEBATE: Esteban Morales vs Carlos Moore  5/25/2011 Negra cubana tenia que ser 

Reaccion de Carlos Moore sobre las declaraciones del Dr Esteban Morales publicadas en su blog  5/12/2011 Carlos Moore: "Son también patrañas cocinadas por el régimen Cubano las alegaciones de que yo habría sido “interprete” del dirigente derechista y reaccionario de Angola, Roberto Holden, al cual yo habría servido de “interprete”. La verdad es que yo nunca conocí a Roberto Holden ni lo ví en mi vida. Todas esas mentiras, cocinadas en la cocina de los servicios de inteligencia de Cuba, se encuentran alojadas en el sitio de Internet AfroCubaWeb - sitio de la izquierda marxista afronorteamericana apoyada por el régimen de Cuba. Según tengo entendido, fue el propio Dr. Morales quien ayudó a implantar ese sitio y quien sirve de fuente principal de todas las desinformaciones que se encuentran en ella."

Race in Cuba: The Root Interviews Carlos Moore  7/29/2010 The Root 

Moore, certero  6/15/2010 Posracialidad, CIR: por Manuel Cuesta Morúa - "De un hombre así Granma habla mal; pero lo hace mal. ¿Y Por qué lo ataca? Pues porque el compatriota Moore acaba de romper, casi simultáneamente, el monopolio que el gobierno cubano conservaba más o menos intacto, hasta el 1 de diciembre de 2009, sobre aquellos tres pivotes fundamentales en las Américas: los afrobrasileños, los afrocaribeños y los afronorteamericanos. Hasta esa fecha, podría decirse que estos importantes sectores tenían una visión compacta en torno a una imagen tópica: Cuba como cierta Isla de Tule con una obra social inigualable destinada, primorosamente, a los negros, mestizos y pobres en Cuba."

Me siento afortunado de haber vivido  2/22/2010 Tania Quintero: Entrevista con Carlos Moore.

FMP - Mark Wells on Afro-Cubans and protest against the imprisonment of Darsi Ferrer, part 1  1/13/2010 YouTube: part of the Carlos Moore campaign - "A group of prominent African Americans, traditionally sympathetic to the Cuban revolution, have for the first time condemned Cuba, demanding Havana stop its callous disregard for black Cubans and declaring that racism in Cuba must be confronted."

El negrito retinto  1/9/2010 El Pais: "Sin himno, sin bandera y sin patria. Considerado como un provocador, el escritor Carlos Moore desvela en Pichón sus desencuentros con la burocracia comunista cubana."

Reverse images: The acrimonious debate on race in Cuba  12/15/2009 SF Bay View: "But the original petition begs numerous questions including, who wrote the original petition? who is Dr. Ferrer? is there really a civil rights movement in Cuba or is the petition merely a grandiloquent expression of Afrogringoism?"

Intelectuales cubanos rechazan calumnias sobre racismo en la Isla  12/10/2009 Radio Havana: "Ya no saben que inventar aquellos que viven a costa de lanzar falsas acusaciones de violaciones de los derechos humanos en Cuba. Ahora les ha dado por decir que la sociedad cubana es racista y que por tanto, en la isla se discrimina a los negros y mestizos. El pasado día primero el diario norteamericano El Nuevo Herald, de Miami, publicó una declaración de supuestos intelectuales afroamericanos, en la que nuevamente se brinda una información tergiversada sobre la realidad cubana y tras la cual se esconde Carlos Moore, un individuo de origen cubano a quien le gusta presentarse como especialista en temas raciales."

Carlos Moore, certero  12/10/2009 Cuba Nuestra: de Manuel Cuesta Morúa, La Habana

Commentary: Is black America's honeymoon with the Castros over?  12/1/2009 McClatchy: By Carlos Moore

Carlos Moore's on-line petition on Darsi Ferrer  12/1/2009 Petition On Line 

ACTING ON OUR CONSCIENCE - A DECLARATION OF AFRICAN AMERICAN SUPPORT FOR THE CIVIL RIGHTS STRUGGLE IN CUBA  12/1/2009 Carlos Moore: A letter organized by Carlos Moore

Prominent black Americans condemn Cuba on racism  12/1/2009 Miami Herald: "The statement was largely driven by Carlos Moore, a highly regarded Cuban author and black-rights activist living in Brazil who has long criticized racial discrimination in Cuba. Moore persuaded Abdias Nascimiento, a founder of Brazil's black movement and longtime Castro supporter, to send Raúl Castro a letter earlier this year denouncing racism in Cuba, then appealed to friends and contacts in the black community to add their support. "Without this historic figure, no one would have listened," said Patterson, who predicted that other high-profile black Americans will soon add their signatures to the statement."

Commentary: Is black America's honeymoon with the Castros over?  12/1/2009 McClatchy: By Carlos Moore "In a landmark "Statement of Conscience by African-Americans," 60 prominent black American scholars, artists and professionals have condemned the Cuban regime's apparent crackdown on the country's budding civil rights movement. "Racism in Cuba, and anywhere else in the world, is unacceptable and must be confronted," said the document, which also called for the "immediate release" of Dr. Darsi Ferrer, a black civil rights leader imprisoned in July. The U.S. State Department estimates Afro-Cubans make up 62 percent of the Cuban population, with many informed observers saying the figure is closer to 70 percent."

HELP FREE CUBAN RIGHTS LEADER  11/2/2009 Trinidad & Tobago Review: a plea from Carlos Moore

Racial Politics in Post-Revolutionary Cuba  8/5/2009 Google Books: Mark Sawyer, quotes Carlos Moore extensively.

«Me siento afortunado de haber vivido» - Carlos Moore, el investigador que luchó contra la manipulación racial del castrismo.  5/11/2009 Cuba Encuentro: "La segunda vez que lo vi [a Fidel Castro], fue en medio de la calle, en La Habana, y aproveché para decirle que no concordaba con lo que él decía, que el racismo había desaparecido en Cuba. Fui a parar ante el Comandante Ramiro Valdés; firmé una "confesión" negando que hubiera racismo en Cuba, y se me envió a un campo de trabajo en Camaguey. Fue en esa ocasión en que, para mi, terminó la luna de miel con el régimen."

CARLOS MOORE: Putting context to Cuba's racial divide  4/21/2009 McClatchy: " Brought to light in 2008, the first comprehensive, officially-sanctioned document addressing the issue of race in Cuba under the Revolution, The Challenges of the Racial Problem in Cuba [2], paints a stark picture of the situation that exists even now in 2009 for the blacks. This graphic, 385-page document, supported by a bounty of hitherto unpublicized statistics, speaks of neglect, denial, and forceful resurgence of racism in Cuba under Communism. The publication shows a growing impoverishment of the population as a whole, but it emphasizes that black Cubans are disproportionately affected. The old segregationist Cuba is gone, according to this document, yet, somehow the country's leadership continues to be predominantly white (71%). A majority of the country's scientists and technicians are white (72.7%), even though both races have equal rates of education. The same whitening process affects Cuba's universities at the professorial level (80% at the University of La Habana). In the countryside, the land that is privately held is almost totally in the hands of whites (98%), and even in the State cooperatives blacks are almost nonexistent (5%). A robust percentage of able-bodied Cubans with jobs are white, whether male (66.9%) or female (63.8%). In contrast, the overall employment rate of blacks who are fit to work is startlingly low (34.2%). We are left to conclude that most able-bodied black Cubans are unemployed (65.8%)."

Black revolution stirring in Cuba  3/29/2009 Trinidad & Tobago Express: "Nazma Muller [a Fidelista] talks to Carlos Moore."

Cuban ambassador calls Moore an outrageous liar.  3/27/2009 Cuban Colada, Miami Herald Blog 

Mere propaganda, lies against Cuba  3/23/2009 Nation News, Barbados: "The publication of my letter of protest by THE NATION is much appreciated and I hope the newspaper will not publish, in the future, any more unpleasant articles like the one I am complaining about which does not correspond or identify with the traditional and magnificent relations and collaborations which exists between the Government and people of Barbados and the government and people of Cuba."

Open Letter to Carlos Moore from Pedro Perez Sarduy  3/18/2009 Norman Girvan: reprinted from AfroCubaWeb, but with some interesting responses.

Some Quick Comments on Carlos Moore's PICHÓN by Walterio Lord Garnés and David González López  2/15/2009 Walter Lipmann: "Walterio Lord Garnés [Havana, 1948] and David González López [Havana, 1947] are collaborators attached to the Centro de Estudios de África y Medio Oriente in Havana and to the University of Havana’s Cátedra “Amílcar Cabral” de Estudios Africanos. They have written dissertations at home and abroad and published works about African and Afro-Cuban cultures in Cuban and foreign publications."

Carlos Moore on the Tavis Smiley Show  2/10/2009 Tavis Smiley Show: "Dr. Carlos Moore is an ethnologist and political scientist, specializing in African, Latin American and Caribbean affairs. He researches and writes on the impact of race and ethnicity on domestic politics and inter-state affairs. Following exile from his native Cuba for opposing the Castro regime's racial policies, Moore has lived and worked in many countries, including the U.S., Senegal and, his current base, Brazil. He holds two doctorates from the University of Paris 7, France and is fluent in five languages."

James Early: Carlos Moore's Outcast Vision and Dangerous Deceit  12/28/2008 CubaNews: "As I've previously mencioned, Moore and others are part of a recent trend to claim that Obama's election is some kind of threat to Cuba because Obama is Black and because, supposedly, this means that Cuban government can no longer say that the United States is racist. As I've mentioned more than once before, Cuba DOES continue to have racial problems, but they are both nothing compared to the racial problem which are widespread in the United States. Their origins and nature are quite different and it's extraordinarly disingenuous to try to conflate them as the group of people such as Carlos Moore, the Miami Herald, and others, all of whom have a long history of hostility toward the revolutionary government in Cuba, have been trying to do."

Afro-Latinos Face Culture Clash  9/24/2007 NPR: "In nations like Brazil, Cuba and the Dominic Republic, many Afro-Latinos say race dominates politics and culture. The Miami Herald has a new series about the black experience in Latin America, called "A Rising Voice: Afro-Latin Americans." John Yearwood — the newspaper's world editor — is director of the series. He's joined by Carlos Moore, a Cuban-born black man who now lives in Brazil."
