  • Whatsapp

The Cuban nation is a fusion of blacks and whites, European immigrants and African slaves and their respective descendants. Today, it is often difficult to determine whether a Cuban is black or white. In recent years there has been a surge of interest in black Cubans and the African influence in the formation of the Cuban nation. In today's program, host Cristina Escobar interviews documentary filmmaker Gloria Rolando of the Yoruba Cultural Association about the African heritage in Cuba, Afro-Cuban religions, and her own work in producing documentaries on these topics. teleSUR
