Black and Cuba Screening at MoCADA

Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA)

Professor Robin Hayes has created an award-winning documentary that sheds light on street-smart Ivy League students and outcasts at their elite university, who band together on an adventure to the enigmatic Carribean island of Cuba, whose population is 60% black. 

While filming their poignant encounters with AfroCuban youth, breathtaking sites and moving hip-hop performances, the travelers confront realities behind myths of color-blindness and social mobility. This edgy and artful documentary of their journey uncovers renewed hope for equality and human rights. "Black and Cuba" is the feature film directorial debut of international human rights advocate and scholar Robin J. Hayes, PhD.

Join Professor Robin Hayes in the screening of her eye-opening documentary and join in on the conversation. 

MoCADA, or the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, is located at 80 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY.  Visit for more information.

Sponsored by MoCADA in association with the Milano School for International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy at The New School.
