Are you interested in being a part of the January/Spring 2018 African Americans in Cuba mini-Mosaic? Come for a short information session!
The Cuba mini-Mosaic will focus on contemporary Afro-Cuban experience, as well as current challenges facing Cuba and its achievements in health care and education. Students will have the opportunity to practice Afro-Cuban music and dance with groups like Raices Profundo in Havana and they will speak with local specialists about the African roots of Santeria. In addition to reflecting on their own experiences while in Cuba, this study tour will prepare students for a critical engagement with the history and politics of African American cultural exchange with Cuba and Cubans from 1859 to 1960. This mosaic is composed of a two-week trip to Cuba in January 2018 and AFST 320 in the Spring 2018 semester. For more information, please contact Trent Masiki (Africana Studies) and Susan Rose (Sociology and Community Studies Center). To apply, please visit the Global Study & Engagement page.
