The Cuban intellectual Roberto Zurbano will be giving a talk on “Ser negro en Cuba hoy: un viaje del campo literario al activismo social”.

Roberto Zurbano’s career began in the field of literary criticism and from there, went on to support the Cuban hiphop movement, which eventually evolved into his current work as a Cuban social activist. Zurbano was the Fall 2013 Scholar/Writer in residence of the Connecticut College Center for Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity. His articles and essays have received international criticism and acclaim and have appeared in literary magazines, journals and media worldwide, with a recent acclaimed New York Times post.
