Dreams Multiplied … A Final Entrée to Cuba

(p.179) Conclusion
Rescuing Our Roots

Andrea J. Queeley

, John M. Kirk
University Press of Florida

The concluding chapter reflects upon changes in Cuban society from the early twentieth century to the post-Soviet era, reviewing key moments for the Anglo-Caribbean Cuban community and emphasizing the paradoxical nature of the political subjectivities of Anglo-Caribbean Cubans. Queeley suggests that the historical pattern of discrimination directed toward people of African descent who have broken through racial barriers in education, employment, and even politics complicates claims to a raceless society and has implications for the direction of transformative visions and antiracist activism in Cuba and beyond. Queeley closes by first suggesting that this dilemma be taken into consideration by antiracist groups in Cuba and, second, by reflecting on what the future might hold for the next generation of Anglo-Caribbean Cubans.
