Description

Another film in the Caribbean Connections Film Series, Cuban Roots/Bronx Stories: An Afro-Cuban Coming of Age Story, highlights the experiences of an Afro-Cuban family of Jamaican and Cuban descent, who migrated to the United States. Through candid interviews, the family reflects on cultural, political, and racial identity – of what was left behind in Cuba and what was discovered in the Bronx.


There will be an introductory talk by Dr. Teresita Levy, Associate Professor, Department of Latin American and Latino Studies, and Director of the Center for Global Engagement, Lehman College.
