The Special Relationship: Cuba and Africa

We speak with Netfa Freeman about Fidel Castro’s impact on Africa. We talk about the origins of the relationship, the development of the Pan-African movement, and the reasons why America remains fixated on overthrowing Cuba’s socialist government. Netfa Freeman was Director of the Institute for Policy Studies Social Action & Leadership School for Activists (SALSA) from 2000 to 2010 and is now the coordinator for events of the other IPS projects. His writings have been published in Black Star NewsBlack Commentator, and Black Agenda ReportPambazuka NewsGlobal Research, and beyond.
