Historical and Contemporary Perspectives
This chapter examines the Cuban/Cuban-American identity from historical and contemporary perspectives. It analyses certain aspects of Cuban history and culture, particularly race and religion, and describes the Cuban-American community and its particular contours. It explores Afro-Cuban religiosity during the colonial and modern eras, the twentieth century, and the present-day period. It suggests that it is hard to understand Cuba without understanding Africa.
