Today we learned more about Afro-Cuban history from two very successful Afro-Cuban women. We learned about the Cuban slaves from a professor and an actress. I liked how the actress gave us a background of her life and we learned about how she grew up and the things she had to face. She also told us the things her mother and family had faced. Another thing we did was work on our projects, I learned more about the census in Cuba and how much it has changed throughout the years. The census went from 36% of people once identifying as Afro-Cuban to just 9% in the most recent 2018 census.
