Black Americans have a complex relationship with Fidel Castro

Last week on November 25, 2016, Fidel Castro passed away. Bill Fletcher, Jr. takes a look back at Castro’s legacy as it relates to Black Americans:

“For many of us in Black America, Castro represented the audacity that we have desired and sought in the face of imperial and racial arrogance. While it is unfortunate that some of us have withheld concerns and criticisms out of respect for Castro and the Cuban Revolution, it is completely understandable. After all, this was the country that deployed troops to Angola that helped to smash the South African apartheid army and their Angolan allies.”
