Focusing on the work of Afro-Cuban writers, Nancy Morejon and Miguel Barnet, Howe exposes the complex relationship between Afro-Cuban intellectuals and government authorities as well as the racial injustices present in Cuban culture.

Review quote

"A brilliant synthesis of Cuba's cultural production since the Revolution. Linda Howe offers the ultimate guide to understanding the cultural policies of the island. This overview is enhanced by her detailed analyses of the works of Nancy Morejon and Miguel Barnet, two Cuban writers whose fortunes and literary preoccupations closely mirror the larger cultural and political movements of their times. Fascinating and comprehensive."--Cristina Garcia, editor of "Cubanisimo"
