Cuban Women of the African Diaspora: Inspirations for Change
A series of films by Juanamaria Cordones-Cook, presenting some of the most distinguished Cuban women of the African Diaspora. Every Sunday evening in October at 8 pm Eastern.
Poets Nancy Morejón and Georgina Herrera, author and researcher Gisela Arandia, graphic artist Belkys Ayón and playwright and director Fátima Patterson, — all are conscious explorers of the experience of Afro-descendiente women of Cuba.
We are providing a space for Cuban women of the African diaspora to speak for themselves. Because of the US blockade of Cuba, which extends to platforms like Zoom, we are unable to have our Cuban sisters participate directly in meetings and conferences. Through these films, made by JuanaMaria Cordones-Cook, a scholar of the amazing surge of Afro-Cuban creativity made possible by the Cuban Revolution, we can share their truths and their creativity with US audiences.
