PAN-AFRICANISM IN CUBA TODAY: HISTORY, OPPORTUNITIES, AND CHALLENGES


February 2-11, 2024

About the Delegation

Learn firsthand the African diaspora’s experience in Cuba, a country with a political system built around human needs above profit. How do Cubans, a Black-majority country, approach environmental protection, religious syncretism, housing rights, and healthcare? What is the role of historic and contemporary abolitionist practices in their quest to eradicate racism? What challenges remain to build an equitable society, especially under the yoke of 60 years of the US Blockade? What do these lessons mean for the struggle for black liberation in the U.S.?

Ground cost: $2,400 + $100 visa fee (sliding scale prices and fundraising support available)

The delegation fee covers all in-country expenses (lodging, travel, meals, interpretation, etc.) along with pre-travel resources, reading lists, and support. The delegation fee also covers our international team’s expenses for delegation preparation and coordination. Any amount paid over the delegation fee will go to support sliding scales, helping to ensure the delegations are more accessible to everyone. A delegation payment of $2000 or more is ideal to cover all of your expenses and the broader delegation needs-- please pay this amount if you have institutional support or other financial resources.
