9780813049052: Subjects or Citizens: British Caribbean Workers in Cuba, 1900–1960

“Whitney and Chailloux Laffita merit high praise for their trenchant research and analysis of the changing political, diplomatic, and colonial finance dynamics within and beyond contexts of British and Spanish Antillean divides. They have turned a twentieth-century narrative that was understood only partially into a well-structured whole. An outstanding historical exercise in the crossing of thresholds.”—Joseph C. Dorsey, author of Slave Traffic in the Age of Abolition

 

“Strives to debunk one of the long-standing myths of Cuban history—that Cuban nationalism is exceptional within the Caribbean. The authors posit that there was no contradiction between being Cuban and being Caribbean; West Indian immigrants outwardly became Cuban while still retaining cultural links and emotional attachments to their respective homelands.”—David Stark, Grand Valley State University

 

During the first half of the twentieth century, Cuba was the center of circum-Caribbean diasporas due to the arrival of over 200,000 immigrants, mainly from Jamaica and Haiti. As many of them went to work on sugar plantations, this migration of British Caribbean peoples was a critical part of the economic and historical development of the island.


Using never-before-consulted oral histories and correspondence, Robert Whitney and Graciela Chailloux Laffita examine this British Caribbean diaspora and chronicle how the immigrants came to Cuba, the living and working conditions they experienced there, and how they both contributed to and remained separate from Cuban culture, forging a unique identity that was not just proudly Cuban but also proudly Caribbean.
