My new book ¡Venceremos?: The Erotics of Black Self-making in Cuba (Perverse Modernities series. Duke University Press) is a critical ethnography on race, desire, and belonging among black Cubans in the early twenty-first-century, as the nation opens its economy to global capital. ¡Venceremos? expands on Audre Lorde’s vision of embodied, even “useful,” desire and shows how black Cubans engage in acts of “erotic self-making,” reinterpreting, transgressing, and potentially transforming racialized and sexualized interpellations of their identities.
