Afro-Cuban Theology: Religion, Race, Culture, and Identity

Afro-Cuban Theology: Religion, Race, Culture, and Identity by Michelle A. Gonzalez
English | Sep. 29, 2006 | ISBN: 081302997X | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

The first book to compare Cuban American and African American religiosity, Afro-Cuban Theology argues that Afro-Cuban religiosity and culture are central to understanding the Cuban and Cuban American condition. Gonzalez interprets this saturation of the Afro-Cuban as transcending race and affecting all Cubans and Cuban Americans in spite of their pigmentation or self-identification. Building on a historical overview of the intersection of race, religion, and nationhood, the author explores the manner in which devotion to La Caridad del Cobre, popular religion, and Cuban letters inform an Afro-Cuban theology.

Solidarity Blues: Race, Culture and the American Left

Solidarity Blues: Race, Culture and the American Left by Richard Iton
English | 30 Jun. 2000 | ISBN: 0807848476 | 360 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

A number of arguments have been made to explain the relative weakness of the American Left. A preference for individualism, the effects of prosperity, and the miscalculations of different components of the Left, including the labor movement, have been cited, among other factors, as possible explanations for this puzzling aspect of American exceptionalism. But these arguments, says Richard Iton, overlook a crucial factor–the powerful influence of race upon American life.

Created by George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward and sung by generations of black performers, Porgy and Bess has been both embraced and reviled since its debut in 1935.
