Cuban Roots/Bronx Stories

Documentary | Long-Form Video, Media | 0 comments

Cuban Roots/Bronx Stories highlights the historical journey of an Afro-Cuban-American family, from Jamaica, to Cuba, to the Bronx, revealing that the Cuban-American experience is more diverse, racially and ideologically, than we are often led to believe. Diana, Ruben, and Pablo reveal stories of growing political awareness, overcoming the dangers of the streets, and coming into their own as Afro-Latinos in the 1960s and 70s. The experiences of one family speak to the larger issues of immigration, race, class, and diaspora that help to shape the identities and political consciousness of everyday people.
