Kathleen López in Caribbean Studies writes on the book: "This collective memoir is suitable for a general readership interested in Cuba s revolutionary history.... [A] compelling selection for undergraduate classrooms.... Visual images bring the narrative to life.
“What was the most important measure to uproot discrimination against Chinese and blacks in Cuba? It was the socialist revolution itself.”
Armando Choy, Gustavo Chui, and Moisés Sío Wong—three young rebels of Chinese-Cuban ancestry—threw themselves into the great proletarian battle that defined their generation. They became combatants in the clandestine struggle and 1956–58 revolutionary war that brought down a U.S.-backed dictatorship and opened the door to the socialist revolution in the Americas. Each became a general in Cuba’s Revolutionary Armed Forces.
Here they talk about the historic place of Chinese immigration to Cuba, as well as more than five decades of revolutionary action and internationalism, from Cuba to Angola, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
Through their stories, we see unfold the social and political forces that gave birth to the Cuban nation and continue to shape our epoch. We see how millions of ordinary men and women like them changed the course of history, becoming different human beings in the process.
