UN Recognizes Cuba's Struggle against Racism

In the case of Cuba, it may be said that it has resolved the major problems of discrimination and largely succeeded in including people of African descent in society, Garcia stated at the Juan Marinello Cultural Research Institute in Havana.

UN Children's Fund representative to Cuba Juan Jose Ortiz said none of the thousands of children of African descent affected by poverty and all its secondary effects is Cuban, thanks to the government's political will.

Barbara Pesce, UN resident coordinator in Havana, stated that Cuba is an example of fighting racial discrimination.

The role of cultural identities in the mass media and their impact on the creation of a new paradigm of racial equity will be the focus today, the second to last day of the seminar.
