Neo Club Ediciones, Art Emporium and the Cuban Integration Platform (CIP) invite you to the launch of the book The African Footprint in Cuba, by publisher and anthropologist Juan Antonio Alvarado, on Sunday, October 2, at 7:00 pm in The Art Emporium Gallery (710 SW 13th. Ave., Miami Fl., 33135). This cultural center is led by Professor and artist Vivian Perez, daughter of legendary Cuban comedian Leopoldo Fernandez

The event also includes the presentation of the issues 6, 7, and 8 of the magazine Identities, by the Cuban specialists Marthadela Tamayo, José Hugo Fernandez and Manuel Cuesta Morúa. Juan Antonio Alvarado is the chief editor of the magazine, a CIP´s publication that advocates for the rights of African descendants and other marginalized groups in Cuba, and promotes citizen empowerment.

“With the expertise that can only be who has researched and, especially, lived the Cuban culture with intensity and commitment, Juan Antonio Alvarado synthesized in his book the historical and ethnographic knowledge achieved in more than three decades of research in their country and even in Africa,” says Norberto Pablo Cirio, Professor at the National University of La Plata, Argentina. Alfonso Shawn Wells, Professor at Carnegie Mellon University in the U.S., emphasizes: “I’ve been looking for a book like this for a long time and I’m making a request to translate it to English so that my students who do not speak Spanish will be able to appreciate and enjoy the reading.”

The Cuban writer José Hugo Fernandez states: “Amid a bleak Cuban scene of littleness and hopeless, perhaps as a result of some devilish strategy of power, fortunately we attended the birth of Identities, whose doers decided, from the first issue, neither at an external request nor by sitting and wait a formal agreement fallen from the sky, to put the magazine into circulation in Cuba, from Havana neighborhoods to inland provinces, municipalities and towns.”

As living evidence of it, David D ‘Omni, artistic director of the Club Santa Mía de la Talla, in Guanabacoa, testifies: “We organized three to five cultural activities per month, with an attendance ranging from 50 to 300 people, and the demand of the magazine has been never satisfied.”

The launch of the book and the presentation of the magazine is a nonprofit event, with free toasts and admission.
