COMPARING THE CUBAN
REVOLUTION'S APPROACH TO
RACE AND GENDER
Mark Sawyer*
Race often trumps gender at both the level of international
law and politics, and within nations. At the same time, the
nexus between race and gender and the complex motives of
states and international actors are not explained by that simple
pronouncement. The purpose of this paper is to explore the
similarities and differences between how race and gender are
treated by the state in post-revolutionary Cuba. In the case of
Cuba, it becomes clear that the connection between race and
gender is both powerful and dynamic.
Mark Q. Sawyer is an Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Department of

appointment with the Center for African American Studies at the University of California, Los
Angeles. He is currently co-Chair of the UCLA Cultural Studies in the African Diaspora
Project. Professor Sawyer has conducted extensive research on the topic of race relations in
Cuba. His manuscript Black and Red: Racial Politics in Post-Revolutionary Cuba is
