Cuba’s Largest Ethnic Minority

Many people will be surprised to learn that Cuba’s largest ethnic minority is those of Haitian descent. “The history of Haitian immigration to Cuba goes back to the Haitian Revolution more than 200 years ago. It was only in the 1990s, however, that The Creole Choir of Cuba made the short trip to its ancestral home. Its members have since returned often, particularly in the wake of Haiti’s devastating earthquake. The song “Pou Ki Ayiti Kriye?” asks how such a beautiful country has to suffer so much.”
