Costumbristas sought to engage in multiple and diverse conversations illustrative of the complex issues of Cuban slavery at the peak of the sugarcane boom, including the impact of Black customs on Cuban traditions. The handful of Costumbrista essays about Blacks demonstrate that there were multifaceted sociopolitical components that reflected not only Cuban colonial status but also reaction to laws and regulations pertaining to slavery. Costumbrista literature also attempted to illustrate the development of a hybrid national identity, a “mulattoness.”

Keywords:   nineteenth-century Cuba, Costumbrista literature, ethnic bias, Black culture formation, Black identity formation, Costumbrista writers on Black subjects, mulattoness
