If you’ve yet to hear the rumors, Rihanna and Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) are currently filming together in Cuba, as both are reportedly cast members of the upcoming Guava Island, directed by Atlanta and “This Is America” video director Hiro Murai. While we’ve yet to hear any details about a plot or release…
If you’re like me, practically all of your friends, associates and even one rogue co-worker took a trip to Cuba in the last year (only one, however, brought this writer back a cigar, ahem). Without exception, all loved the island nation filled with black people, salsa and respite from life in the United States, rolled…
Fidel Ángel “Fidelito” Castro Díaz-Balart, 68, the eldest son of Cuban revolutionary and former President Fidel Castro, committed suicide Thursday, Cuba’s state media reported.
In response to President Donald Trump’s announcement Friday that he is reversing the Obama administration’s lifted restrictions with Cuba, the Castro government released a lengthy statement saying that the U.S. is in “no condition” to lecture them, especially given the sorry state of race relations in the U.S.
President Donald Trump is continuing on his “I’m going to do the opposite of whatever Obama did” presidency tour, announcing Friday that he’s going to get tough on Cuba, including a demand that the communist country return American fugitives and name-checking Assata Shakur, née Joanne Chesimard.
We have a few years worth of proof that Barack Obama is leasing prime real estate in Donald Trump's Cheeto-adjacent brain. Beginning, of course, with the birther fiasco — the transparently racist pseudo controversy that made Trump a viable political figure and reminded us that Capital Letter Whiteness, if believing…
For all those who didn’t get to go to Cuba during the two years after President Barack Obama lifted restrictions on travel to the country, you might be SOL.
President Donald Trump is expected to make substantial changes to the U.S. policy toward Cuba in Miami on Friday.

Cuban President Raúl Castro said Saturday that Cuba will not name any streets or erect an public monuments in honor of his brother Fidel, in keeping with the former leader’s expressed desires, reports The Guardian.
Don't romanticize the death of Fidel Castro, or the tales of his revolution, or the political asylum granted to Assata Shakur. Castro was a tyrannical dictator who kept the people of Cuba under his heel or at the end of his gun. From the time he took office in 1959 until his death Nov. 25, Castro's Cuba wasn't a…
Fidel Castro, the leader and face of Cuba’s revolution, died Friday at age 90. The iconic leader who for years was not seen without a Cohiba cigar was as beloved as he was despised. One of his greatest legacies was his fierce resistance of 50 years of U.S. attempts to topple him.
Time to throw up your Cohibas!
“No te olvides que tienes raíces Latinas.” ("Do not forget you have Latin roots.")
Whenever I hear Cubans talk about their nation’s advancements in health care, and when I think about where the U.S. is on all this, what I hear is a tale of two scarcities. The tales, however, end differently for the people of color who are the main characters.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced Friday that the Department of Transportation has approved six domestic airlines to begin scheduled flights between the United States and Cuba as early as this fall, a press release from the White House notes.
Do you remember a few months ago when people were unfriending folks left and right because they found out their friends were Donald Trump supporters or über-conservative or even sometimes closet racists?
