Devyn Spence Benson: Antiracism in Cuba: The Unfinished Revolution
Antiracism in Cuba: The Unfinished Revolution (UNC Press, 2016) is based on more than 18 months of field research in Cuba where Benson traveled annually since 2003. In the book she examines the steps and missteps in Fidel Castro’s 1959 anti-discrimination campaign by giving particular attention to how Afro- Cubans experienced, participated in, and challenged the revolution’s approach to anti-racism.
