The Liberatory Potential of Caribbean Women
The City College of New York
Myriam Chancy’s latest study, From Sugar to Revolution: Women’s Visions of Haiti, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, is a stunning achievement in comparative analysis of Caribbean cultures. It is simply a master class for those of us who attempt to make sense of the complex histories of the region and the written works and visual arts that result. In this rich text, Chancy juxtaposes works by women of Cuba, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, highlighting the long-standing relationships of the nations of Hispaniola and the largest Antillean island.
