(p.1) 1 Introduction
Afro-Cuban Theology

Michelle A. Gonzalez

University Press of Florida

This book examines the intersection of Afro-Cuban and Latino/a culture and religiosity through the study of a particular group, the Cuban-American community. It proposes a theological analysis of the everyday faith of Cuban-Americans, informed by the political, cultural, and economic markers that characterize this community and explains that the underlying thesis of this study is that Afro-Cuban culture saturates Cuban culture. It examines the notion of identity within Afro-Cuban and Latino/a theologies, explores Cuban-American theology and discusses Cuban and Cuban-American identities, both historical and contemporary.

Keywords:   Afro-Cuban culture, Latino/a culture, religiosity, Cuban-Americans community, theology, identity
