The Cuban Revolution and its Role in Defeating South Africa Apartheid with Isaac Saney

Isaac Saney is the author of Cuba: A Revolution in Motion, a detailed look at the Cuban Revolution since the beginning of the economic crisis that confronted Cuba with the collapse of the Soviet trade bloc until today.

His film African Stalinigrad: Cuba And Southern African Liberation documents the decisive role of Cuba in achieving the independence of Namibia and ending racist rule in South Africa. It includes footage of the visit of Nelson Mandela to Cuba and his moving speech in praise of the invaluable contribution of Cuba to the liberation struggles of Africa; the critical 1988 Battle of Cuito Cuanavale and commentary by Fidel Castro.

Isaac Saney is a professor at Dalhousie University and Saint Mary’s University, both in Halifax, Canada. He has advanced degrees in International Development Studies and Law, with research interests in Cuba, international political economy, race and racism, and Black Nova Scotian history, areas on which he regularly lectures and publishes. He is a self-described internationalist, whose roots lie in Trinidad & Tobago and Nova Scotia, Canada.
