The United States and Cuba: What African-American Communicators and Journalists Need to Know
The continuing political and legal battle over Elian Gonzalez has rekindled debate about U.S.-Cuban relations and life in Cuba after the revolution. Now that the majority of Cubans are of African descent, what are the implications of race for the islands' future and its relations with the United States? Join us for a riveting discussion by a panel of journalists and columnists who will discuss what they learned during recent trips to Cuba [including one documented by AfroCubaWeb involving 9 African American columnists]. Cuban diplomats will also respond to questions.

"We are a Latin-African people..." - Fidel Castro, May 1976, on why Cuban troops were in Africa
Blacks in Cuba have played a central role in forging the Cuban national identity which is inseparable from its revolutionary heritage. This began 130 years ago with the fight for independence from Spain which was intertwined with the fight to abolish slavery. The socialist revolution 40 years ago, in 1959, uprooted racism and opened the door to building a new society.
