ABOUT “CUBA IN AFRICA”
Abdurahman’s acclaimed, award-winning film Cuba in Africa was years in the making, overcoming many obstacles, to tell the truth (mostly untold in the US) of Cuba’s revolutionary internationalist mission from 1976-1991 that was decisive in winning the sovereignty of Angola, the independence of Namibia, and securing the unraveling and defeat of apartheid South Africa.
