Why Did You Make “Black and Cuba”?

Director Robin Hayes describes her inspiration to make “Black and Cuba,” our feature-length documentary that helps us answer the question: How will we overcome race and class?

We are excited to announce a New York City work-in-progress screening on May 17th from 7-9 PM at Cinema Village (22 East 12th St) followed by  a Q & A session with the director and a reception from 9-10:30.

To help us complete this film, purchase your tickets and find other perks on our Indiegogo page.
