Crossing Havana: Encounters with the Other City

"Crossing Havana" is a social documentary photography exhibit on real, current living conditions for many black Cubans in Cuba's capital, Havana. The photographs in this exhibit, while not professional, were taken by black Cuban civil rights activist members of the island's premier, independent, civic organization devoted to fighting racism, discrimination and civic disengagement, the Comité Ciudadanos por la Integración Racial [Citizens' Committee for Racial Integration], founded in 2008.

Yet, "Crossing Havana" is much more than a photo exhibit. The week will be filled with a series of activities, e.g., informal chats, formal presentations, roundtables, receptions, film viewings, radio interviews, and musical and dance performances, workshops and a concert by Coro Latinoamericano-Pittsburgh entitled "AfricAméricas" on Saturday, May 11, 2013. The entire week seeks to draw in and engage a broad cross-section of Pittsburgh community members—blacks, whites and Latinos—with black Cuban life in contemporary Havana and Afro-Latin culture, in general.

Events will be at different Pittsburgh locations—YMWAHA, City of Asylum, CMU and the Frick Fine Arts Auditorium.

A full schedule will be posted very soon.
