The Previously Untold  Story of Cuba’s Support for African Revolutions

From Che Guevara’s military campaign to avenge Lumumba in the Congo up to the fall of apartheid in South Africa, 300,000 Cubans fought alongside African revolutionaries. Cuba: An African Odyssey is the previously untold story of Cuba’s support for various African revolutions, one of the Cold War’s most vigorous contests over resources and ideology. This film attempts to understand the world today through the saga of these Cuban internationalists who won every battle but ultimately lost the war.

The film screening will start at 7:00 pm and will be followed by a reception.

Price: $10 suggested donation fee

Location: Maysles Cinema at 343 Malcolm X Blvd. (Lenox Blvd) between 127th & 128th Streets, Harlem, NY 10027
