Unbecoming Blackness

Unbecoming Blackness

Autor: Antonio Lopez

Número de Páginas: 271

2014 Runner-Up, MLA Prize in United States Latina and Latino and Chicana and Chicano Literary and Cultural StudiesIn Unbecoming Blackness, Antonio López uncovers an important, otherwise unrecognized century-long archive of literature and performance that reveals Cuban America as a space of overlapping Cuban and African diasporic experiences. López shows how Afro-Cuban writers and performers in the U.S. align Cuban black and mulatto identities, often subsumed in the mixed-race and postracial Cuban national imaginaries, with the material and symbolic blackness of African Americans and other Afro-Latinas/os. In the works of Alberto O’Farrill, Eusebia Cosme, Rómulo Lachatañeré, and others, Afro-Cubanness articulates the African diasporic experience in ways that deprive negro and mulato configurations of an exclusive link with Cuban nationalism. Instead, what is invoked is an “unbecoming” relationship between Afro-Cubans in the U.S and their domestic black counterparts. The transformations in Cuban racial identity across the hemisphere, represented powerfully in the literary and performance cultures of Afro-Cubans in the U.S., provide the fullest account of a transnational...

The Wrong House

Autor: Esteban Burier

Número de Páginas: 170

“THE WRONG HOUSE” (Marielito; Exodus of Cubans in 1980) By Esteban Burier For all opponents of the Castro regime who went to comply with arbitrary sanctions; for those who were executed by the Castro regime; deprived of any defense, innocent of cases imposed by improvised courts; for those who were under the inclemency of the murderer Ernesto (Che) Guevara and so many other lap dogs of the dictator Fidel Castro; They are my deepest respect and admiration. They gave their lives with a shout of; Live Christ the King! Long live free Cuba! “THE WRONG HOUSE” Narrates the childhood of a boy that never thought twice to make a decision, committing many errors which took him, as consequence of punishment, to many juvenile reformatories and at last to jail, where he spent part of his life. The good education from his family did not influence on the boy, who does not divert from his delinquent path. A supernatural strength pushed him to these twisted paths to destroy and incarcerate him to where the stubborn are taken, to where you are subject to many tests and you can lose your dignity and also your manhood, depending on how weak or strong your personality is or if you allow to be...

Lila´s sorrows

Lila´s sorrows

Autor: José Prats Sariol

Número de Páginas: 332

Lila is a simply unforgettable adventure. The past is evoked with affection and authentic compassion, at times infused with a little bit of humor […] It is not easy, and much less common, to find a text that is so balanced yet moving at the same time. The story has a profound impact without indulging in melodrama. In her letters, the main character holds on to her memories like a shipwreck survivor clings to hope. Prats Sariol has given us an epistolary novel and a crime novel all in one. The murder mystery is not solved until the very end; it is only in the last line that we find out how Lila and her good friend and accomplice in life, Virginia, died. This is something that only the best novels achieve without resorting to false trickery. The present is taken one day at a time, without asking for too much: being grateful is a virtue. The future, on the other hand, is revealed in conjunction with each reunion, especially the one with the beloved Valerio, late at night, somewhere in Europe. But I will say no more; read for yourself and enjoy. In Lila’s words: “I’ve just registered my exile. Tomorrow, in some corner, another foreigner will wave his handkerchief.” Eliseo...

Rage from Within

Autor: ,Nelson

Número de Páginas: 268

This sensational piece of love and death is totally veridic and shows the cruelty of a slave country by a dictator who without mercy oppress and kill the people from hunger, thirst, and injustice, violating the human rights, taking the Cuban people to suicide through the need and desperation. This book shows the real life of Cuba; it shows how the people is tortured, and without hope that one day they could be free or liberated from the yoke that make them die prematurely through suicide. And each day, the oppression against Cubans’ human rights grow. This book shows the inequality in Cuba compared with other countries that are not slave or ruled by a dictator. This piece is written following the sadness and suffering from Cuba.

Caribbean Without Borders

Número de Páginas: 315

One of the most salient issues in Caribbean studies is the region's linguistic and cultural fragmentation as a result of European colonization. More than five centuries later, the islands and American countries whose shores touch the Caribbean Sea still echo such maladies. The title of this book is a call towards unity, a unity that, in the words of Barbadian poet, historian and critic Kamau Brathwaite, "is submarine." In the past, nations' borders were established based on the distance a cannon ball was able to cover when fired from land out to sea. It is time to go beyond the cannon ball distances out into uncharted territories, beyond the canon, and, thus, beyond the cannon's range.This book features a selection of essays presented at the fifth annual Caribbean Without Borders conference at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras. It critically delves into the fields of linguistics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, feminism, cultural studies, music, film, and art, among many others, as a means to re-visit, re-view, re-envision, re-read, re-interpret, and thus re-create a Caribbean aesthetics that looks to submarine unity, a unity that defies spatial, temporal, and ...
