Black and Cuba is the award-winning documentary that follows street-smart Ivy League students who are outcast, band together, and adventure to Cuba – whose population is 60% Black. While filming their poignant encounters with AfroCuban youth and neighborhood block parties, the travelers confront realities behind myths of color-blindness and social mobility. This edgy and artful diary of their journey uncovers renewed hope for equality and human rights. Featuring Fidel Castro, Fred Hampton, Che Guevara, Malcolm X and Assata Shakur in rarely seen footage.
